"LOVE" in Bible Discussions

 
  • Jesse - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Sir, you've done no wrong. It's not what we eat that defiles us, but what comes out of the mouth (Matthew 15:11). It's the evil that comes out of the mouth that defiles because it comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something I have learned about the so called greatest commandments spoken in Matthew Chapter 22. Those are not commandments at all. Our English bibles look like they are commands, but in the Greek text, they are not in command form but are statements of fact. Jesus was not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. What He was saying is that if you have born of His Spirit, you will love the Lord you God, and you will love your neighbor. Not a command but statement of fact.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Sir, you've done no wrong. Jesus said (Matthew 15:11) that it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out. Food we eat does not defile us. It's what comes out of the mouth, the evil a person speaks, because that comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something else here that I have learned. The two "greatest commandments" in Matthew Chapter 22, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and love thy neighbor, are not commands. Our bibles make it sound like they are commands, but the Greek text shows that they are not commands. Jesus is not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. He's giving us a factual statement, you will love, if you have my Spirit in you. Fact!
  • Kimb on Revelation 12
    Yes God loves you, a love that surpasses our understanding. God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind. God bless you. I encourage you to read your Bible on scripture of what you are going through and read and read and read again and keep praying about it, I can testify to this, God will help you but you have to go to him and admit that you need him and he is just to deliver you. Praying and God bless you.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Someone asked Jesus what was the most important commandment.
    Matthew 22:36 - Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
    Matthew 22:37 - Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
    Matthew 22:38 - This is the first and great commandment.
    Matthew 22:39 - And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    Matthew 22:40 - On these two commandments hang ALL the law and the prophets.
  • Anon - in Reply on Revelation 12
    Of course the God of Abraham loves you. It's something the adversary would like you to disbelieve. Fear that brings torment is not of God. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and leads to life. Perfect loves casts out all fear. God has not given us the spirit of bondage again to fear, but of power, of love and a sound mind. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee. To get into Christ and access the Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of His dear Son you have to follow protocol. Jesus said: You must be born again. The evangelists are there as door keepers and guides to enter in. Belief in Christ, submission to God, confession of sin etc
  • Gina Hopkins - in Reply on Proverbs 16
    Yes, Janet you have let go and let God speak Iknow you don't want to bury your son either. I work with youth and Adults for 35 year what I seen when the very people that are close to them are constantly enabling them by providing money to get high ( Stop) take him to get something to eat or personal items stop letting your son drug addiction get to you. Fall on your knee pray ( Get the movie- War Room) give it to God you stop trying to handle it yourself God is on the throne he can change things overnight you just pray for God to keep his life in the mist of whatever he going to. And mom the true reality is may have to go to jail to dry him out to its not a bad thing all the time I love you
  • Mickey on Isaiah 1412-16 on Matthew 1
    Actually in Isaiah chapter 14:12-16, satan says I WILL 5 times!

    God is not destroying people's lives. One of satans other names is: DESTROYER. And he is the ACCUSER of the brethern. Revelation 12:10, Job 1:6,12 and Zechariah 3:1

    Part of our problem is that we do not trust God. We think he does all the painful things. Like why is he allowing satan to get near us? Hear that accusatory question? Or, why doesn't Jesus just heal everybody? Why does bad things happen to good people?
    There is the WILL of God. God gave free will to mankind in the garden of Eden. Satan has a will too. He's not going to do anything good with it. Read Job 1. He's defeated. Intercede for loved ones.
  • Mickey to Teresa - in Reply on Acts 16
    As you read & compare the gospel chapters: Jesus did everything openly. When He was charged with blasphemy by his own people, judged, prosecuted and ordered to be crucified, IT WAS VIEWED by everyone!
    Ought we not be ashamed to have our momentous occasions witnessed by those that love us and our friends? Jesus is your friend too. Water baptism is to show your repentance. It's an act of obedience. Mark 1:4, 8. In John 1:32-34 John the Baptist, baptised Jesus in water. He saw the Holy Spirit as a dove abode upon Jesus. (Confirmation). John said, the same (Jesus) is he which baptizeth with the with the Holy Spirit. Write the day in your Bible :)
  • Adam - in Reply on Acts 12:4
    Hello, I personally don't think it's necessarily a sin, but think panic is a type of fear and fear is the opposite of love and trust in God. So, you could say it shows a lack of love and lack of trust in God, perhaps that of a Christian who is currently immature in their walk with Christ. 1 John 4:18. The Bible has lots of wisdom on fear, peace, trust, hope and someone looking to mature in peace and love should be reading those as practice to become spiritually strong.
  • Mutt - in Reply on Leviticus 27
    The 2 great commandments are mentioned every time. The first in to love the Lord thy God with all they heart,mind and soul and the second is to love thy neighbor as thyself. By keeping the 10, you are keeping the 2.

    Are the 10 commandments part of the Mosaic Law and if so, then one must keep the whole law, true? If one lets God empower them to keep the two Great Commandments,
    no, Jesus fulfilled the 10 Commandments (lived a sinless life). So being a Christian, you would want to do the things that He told you to do,correct? He says And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things I say? You aren't saved because you try and keep the law, keeping the law is the fruit of being saved
  • Chris on 1 Peter 2
    This of course, is a difficult call. On the one hand, as you say, we demonstrate our love to God and faith in the right outcome. On the other hand, unbelievers seeing you gathering together for worship, will consider you irresponsible and dangerous for meeting in this way. It would be the Church's determination keeping this in mind. However, if the laws of the land prohibit believers from meeting at all or in practising their faith for no other reason than the spirit of anti-christ being at work, then we should by means fulfil the God's Holy requirement on us and stand up to evil and face the consequences. Sadly, the Bible tells us that there will be a great falling away as a result.
  • Ce - in Reply on Leviticus 27
    New Testament Scripture, "If you love Me, keep my Commandments" (John 14:15); in these types of discussions, in general, why aren't the two Great Commandments also mentioned since they are mentioned in the NT also? Getting tired, Are the 10 commandments part of the Mosaic Law and if so, then one must keep the whole law, true? If one lets God empower them to keep the two Great Commandments, will it cause them to obey the Ten Commandments also?
  • Mickey - in Reply on 1 John 4:16
    I heard as a baby Christian that the Holy Spirit is your teacher, your comforter, convicter of sin, protector. Study the HS
    In your concordance in the Bible. He comes alongside you when you call. His love is wonderful :)
  • Diane - in Reply on 1 John 2
    No place in 1John 2 have I found a place where it speaks of talking with tongues. This chapter speaks of loving God and his commandments and not being ashamed of him but to keep his commandments. To love him is keeping his word. If ye love me keep my commandments. The Holy Ghost comes to the righteous. Speaking with tongues is interpreted and speaking strangely it is not it means to be able to understand another and to be able to learn a language of another. The Gospel is love. The simplest most loving answer is the correct one. The Lord will never leave you alone.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Hebrews 1
    I am positive that babies who die are taken at once to heaven. Mark 14:16 Keep praying for them. We know WHO is taking care of them. I gather things from friends and neighbors and take them to an orphanage near me. Some people sew beanies for kids having chemo.
    Take some of that pain & shower it on another child. It eases the feelings.
    Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
    We will see those we've loved and lost, again. I learned to ask the Holy Spirit to comfort me.
  • Fred scanlan - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Hebrews 9:27 It is appointed for men once to die then after this the judgment. When we are in Christ, the bible says that we are new creatures,created in Him. Romans 14;8 For whether we live,we live unto the lord. Whether we die we die unto the lord.Whether we live or die we are the lords. God is the God of the living not the dead. There is no fear in perfect love. Colossians 3: 1-4 Set your affections on things above,not on things of the earth. For ye are dead and your life is hid in Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears then shall ye also appear with Him in GLORY!
  • K D Harms - in Reply on Revelation 7
    Talk about fire and brimstone! Please recall, It's the goodness of God that leadeth thee to repentance. -- Romans 2:4. All you street preachers mix some honey with your vinegar. Put yourselves in the shoeless footsteps of the skid row sinner. He is likely using (abusing) to escape their sinful state. They likely have already experienced the wrath of Satan. He and she are trying to find solace in a dark and crooked and perverse world the they have already been subjected and are currently enduring. So you are the light of God to them and representing God's love for them. What an honor, privilege in the exercised authority and (exousia) power you have - in the absence of the physical Christ!
  • RC on Genesis 6:6
    There is no discrepancy in God's Word. In regard to God's repenting because He created man in earth was not because of God sinning as man does. God cannot sin. Repentance is being sorrowful in your heart for human sin (disobeying God). God was sorrowful for His creation, not GOD sinning. Thank God, Jesus paid the price for OUR sin...He was without sin....God loved us (creation) enough to make way to be with Him through the Cross and Blood of His pure Son. Today repent for your sin, ask Jesus to save you, believe in your heart He died and rose again and confess Him as your Lord and Savior. Saved by grace..a gift from God...God with us..Thank You Lord Jesus!!!
  • Mick - in Reply on Matthew 15
    The Godhead is 3 distinct persons: Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. Two times they said, "Let us". One was at creation, the other was at the Tower of Babel. The Father gave us to Jesus. He is the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Jesus.
    We pray to the Father in Jesus name. We ask the Holy Spirit to baptize us. He is our boots on the ground: He teaches us about Jesus, comforts us, He opens up the Bible so you can understand. You have to desire increasing closeness with Him. You will be smitten with a love you cannot describe. They deserve our worship :)
  • Joshua - in Reply on John 13
    I don't think it is possible for us to love near as much as Jesus - Not while we live for the flesh. But I think it's Jesus' grace and power in us, God's children, that makes it possible for us to gain that love for each other. I believe God tells us this throughout the New Testament.
  • LC Nelson - in Reply on Leviticus 15
    In response to William Leviticus 15 statement: Taking no thought for tomorrow. Those thoughts refer to natural thoughts. God is concern about your Spiritual Life. It is your Spiritual Life that we should be putting on everyday. Getting rid of hate, jealousy, strife, envy and clothing ourselves with the fruits of the Spirit: Galatians 5: 22-23 Love, Joy, Peace Longsuffering. It is a difficult task, because God saves every person a different way. But when he gets you to that place where you understand how much he loves you and what he did for you, you will live a different life. God will established himself in your heart and you will not fear what is happening around you.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Ezekiel 42
    Just because someone claims to be a Jew or Christian does not make it so.
    Even Jesus said so in bible book Revelation 2:9 - I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
    Jesus in Revelation 3:9 - Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
    Many church goers and their pastors are no better.
  • Vickie - in Reply on Matthew 7:22
    Calling Jesus by his Hebrew name in scripture should be no cause for contentious debate.
    Refer to the Strong's Concordance: Phonetic Spelling: (ee-ay-sooce')
    Definition: Jesus or Joshua, the name of the Messiah, etc.
    At the Revelation of Jesus Christ he will reveal his 'new' name known by none of us.
    We all (including me) need to be careful about straining that nat & swallowing that camel. The Kingdom of God is more than debate. It is unfeigned love of the brethren. Let us not judge in the matters that do not pertain to salvation....but let each of us be convinced in our own hearts. The Holy Spirit will teach each heart.
  • Mick - in Reply on Romans 1
    I always use King James Bible for study. I read the NIV before I sleep. When I was brand new Born Again I had a Living Bible. It's so marked up I can barely read it lol. It takes me back to those first days of first love for Jesus. I never felt so loved prior to that.
  • Mick - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 7
    To Deanna: we are all commanded to love one another. "A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have always loved you, that ye also love one another.
    An example of this Jesus kind of love is seen in Acts chapter 2:42-47. People were going house to house, sharing meals, searching the Word... they were excited, turned on for God. Wish I was there today :)
  • Deanna on 1 Corinthians 7
    Can you plz elaborate on a question I have? I know the Holy Bible says the 5th Commandment is to honor your mother and your father, now is there ever a time when a parent should reverse that? Should a mother have to prove her love and devotion to her child?
  • Mickey - in Reply on Ezekiel 42
    This is going to be brief for now. I will collect the Scriptures that are involved. Did a study a few months back.
    God has an end time program for the Orthodox Jews of this present day. We can already see it coming together. I read online Jewish Newspapers to keep a finger on the heartbeat of prophesy:
    In 1948, Israel attained statehood. 1967 they won Independence. God began bringing Jews from all over the planet back to Israel. Anti-sematism has helped move this along. The land will bloom with them back. They will love the land and fight for it. In the space of time they will turn back to God; and love Him heart and soul. Accept his Son. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Who wants to?
  • Jeju 20 on Isaiah 1:3
    Coronavirus Outbreak in America and worldwide, Oh God we are still net repent!!

    " In the old bible, He wanted to close the door of the temple. ..
    He did it,
    Now, He has closed the door.

    He couldn't look on it anymore...

    Shamefully, we repent now.
    I had no love.,failed to give, and was unthankful, i.e.,
    God was not happy with me,
    Mankind is weak, just dust, invisible, not realizing that without God we have no life."
    Lord have mercy on us.....
  • Maro Emmanuel O - in Reply on Deuteronomy 22
    Those of u saying wearing of trousers is a sin, I hav a quest. 4 u, read vs 9 nd 11, of same Deuteronomy 22, All of u puting on cloth of different materials or colour, as of wool nd linen together or Plating of different crops on same farmland u are as guilty as a woman wearing trousers in vs 5, we are not under d law again, Christ has pay d price we are under grace nd being justified by our good work nd luv to humanity. Love God nd luv ur Neigbors as urself this is d whole law, Galatians 5:4 If we claim dat righteous came by obeying the law then we hav falling away frm Christ nd God blessing, but the just shall live by Faith, vs 22 said if u are guided by d spirit u are not under d law.
  • Nicole - in Reply on Daniel 8
    John 3:16 is such a powerful passage. It expresses God's true love for us. That love is called Agape. The best way I understand it is that GOD loves us so much that He gave Jesus, His only son, as a sacrifice so that we can be forgiven for our sin. Jesus' blood covers our sins.

    Imagine if you had a child and how much you would love them. You would want to keep them safe from hurt, harm, and danger. Well Jesus is God's son and He gave His son to cover our sins. If you are baptized, repent, believe that Jesus was raised from the grave on the 3rd day you are saved. Nothing will or can separate you from the love of God, nothing.
