"PEOPLE" in Bible Discussions

  • Sheri - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    In verse 16, Paul says that if you would like to argue about hair length, it is up to you as this has nothing to do with God's people. We judge by the heart, not outward appearance. I cannot imagine Jesus complaining about how long or short someone's hair is.
  • 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
  • William mathis - in Reply on Numbers 21
    our Elohim sent in fiery serpants to bite the people not because of idols it was because they complained and murmured against God and his servant moses and did not appreciate the heavenly manna food given to them by the mosthigh it has nothing to do with idols there hearts were still in egypt.
  • Linda A Adams - in Reply on Acts 12:4
    Romans: Romans: 10: v. 20, 21 Then Isaiah is so bold as to say, "I have been found by those who did not seek me." I have shown myself to those those who did not ask for me. But of Israel he says, "All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.
    Romans: 11: v. 1-21 I ask, then, has God rejected his people? By no means! I myself am an Israelite, a descendent of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not rejected whom he foreknew. Do you not know what the scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? 3 "Lord they have killed your prophets, they have demolished your altars; I alone am left, and they are seeking my life." (Read on..)
  • Smitty - in Reply on Exodus 29
    Frank, The reason we had to sacrifice animals is because WE sinned. It's not like God just wanted us to kill animals for his pleasure. Before Adam and Eve got us started on this journey Man cared for and had dominion over the animals and did not kill and eat them. It's called a sacrifice because you have to give up something. You have to feel the pain of giving up something to truly understand what sacrifice means. Imagine how God felt giving up his son to pain and suffering for a people who didn't even understand what he was doing for us all.
  • Mick on JOHN 1010 on Acts 16
    I told a little of my testimony to let others know how very present the Holy Spirit is to us during crisis. Ask. He's there. Talk to him. Ask Him to teach you to pray; intercede like Jesus is doing now. A intercessor (I was taught) is one who asks to stand alongside someone, in their place, to fight against satan or to release a blessing into someone else's life. You must know who you are in Jesus Christ before you take on some hell to stand in for someone who may not know they're on satans radar. He steals, kills and destroys. John 10:10
    Pray for people who need it. People are hurting now and receptive to let someone pray for them. Answered prayers are your reward. :D
  • 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.
  • Shulammithi - in Reply on Job 1
    Some times it helps to introduce the faith people to the world like job
  • Chris on Acts 12:4
    This is an often asked question. I then ask:why did God allow bad things to happen to His Son Jesus Christ? And we know that Jesus faced people's anger, hatred, hunger, temptation, misunderstandings, beatings, thorns, spearing and death. If God allowed His only begotten Son to suffer so much, when He did no wrong & without any sin, should we be surprised that we, as good as some might try to be, also suffer? We are all born sinners, even the slightest wrong-doing makes us such. But Jesus did no wrong, even when under severe testing by Satan - yet He suffered. So, the answer is that we all suffer because we are sinners, but now as Christians, we are given His Grace to live above the pain.
  • Mick - in Reply on Revelation 3
    I did not say the Catholic religion had it all right. You're judging. Scripture says don't do it.rnIt was the Holy Spirit that opened up Luke 1 to me. I used to think like you are.rnAll generations of catholic believers have done something NO ONE in other religions barely ever do. She is Jesus's mother. She was chosen. She spoke what had been spoken to her by the angel.rnALL GENERATIONS of people will call her BLESSED. It's a prophesy! Don't mess with Gods prophesies. Apostle John called her blessed. Have you ever wondered about Luke Ch. 1 ?
  • Mick on acts 238 - in Reply on Acts 16
    That wasn't really my experience, after salvation. The Holy Spirit was helping me survive coming out of the occult practice of astrology. I knew someone was telling me to destroy many things in my home; or burn them. Acts 19:19. I had to have a witness to that. I had to tell people who knew me that I had been saved. He was protecting me. I was delivered of drugs & alcohol first day. I destroyed that. It was moment to moment the first week. I went to a church and told them a brief testimony. Following week I was water baptized. Next Sunday The demons came back to torment me. The Holy Spirit was with me every moment until I could learn what was happening. I worship God with my life. He's real.

    Hebrews 5:14 - But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to DISCERN both good and evil.1 Corinthians 2:14 - But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them , because they are spiritually DISCERNED (We need the Holy Spirit to give us CORRECT discernment or we will lose our way).
    1 Kings 3:9 - Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?" When a Christian discerns the WRONG way, he/she is to turn away from it.
  • 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 :)
  • Moreia on Acts 12:4
    Hi I'm new to this discussion, I recently downloaded the bible app. I'm also a believer of God. Recently I met a young Christian who asked me why does God allow Bad things to happen to good people? Your feedback please...
  • Tanya Gilbert on Amos 3
    When a person walk they take one step at a time. If two people walk side by side, it doesn't mean that they are moving in sinc with one another, they both walk differently. One might walk on his toes, the other on his heel. but if they are walking in the same direction, then they are in agreement, taking the same path.
  • Albert Knitht on Ezekiel 37
    So many years ago my birth took place and I was circumcised in the heart. I read some history about when the Romans came in in 70 AD destroy their Temple as the Messiah prophesize. Shutting off all sacrifice and works as the high priest build up on the hill saddle on a donkey with his companion and he said to the rabbi what shall we do now in the rain by explain to him our good works well then, My Sacrifice good works without the spirit and the nature of the Messiah working through you because you're a one with him and he's one with you is simply commendable that's for sure but it's dead works that made me understand the Veil set became over the Jewish people for centuries they been taught .
  • Vanessa - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Passover was the night before Moses led God's people out of egypt, He instructed them to place lambs blood on the top and sides of their doorway, so the angel of death would pass by, Jesus was God's sacrifice for all of the world, that whosoever believe in Him, turn from our evil ways, repent of
    our sins, except Him as our Lord we shall live and not die. Praise the Lord Amen
  • Andy on Revelation 6
    The locusts eat the crops which cause famines. The covid-19 virus is one of the pestilence that kills people all around the world because people in China eat the beasts of the fields (rats and bats). We are in the last days and on the threshold of Christs return. These are exciting times for the saved and scary for the lost. 🙏🏻 Amen
  • Mickey - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Find your favorite preacher on youtube to view some Revelation 12 teaching. You'll have to put the 12 in the search box. My personal favorite on revelation is Oral Roberts. I lived in Tulsa 3 yrs. People there made jokes about him every day mercilessly. One time he said something that caused huge uproar and the Christians said they were going to hide under rocks. Something boiled up in me (Holy Spirit) and I shouted, are you all going to turn on a brother?! Makes me think of apostle Paul. Everybody just kind of melted around a corner. We gotta stick together. (It was Jesus not me.) we don't get to shun...
  • Kevin Mack on Psalms 2
    Some things never change. Just like Nimrod who had the tower of babble built to try and take over Gods kingdom. Lie to the people of that time period and gave another reason why he wanted the tower built so he could have his way. he was the 1st.Freemason' that ever existed, he invented the craft, the whole doctrines from 1st.degree Mason to 99 degree Mason. Witchcraft to the max. He became very arrogant and thought he could win a war against the most high. Satan controlled him 100%. Centuries later year 2020 the same people, same luciferian spirit, same Freemason's, and illuminate members relatives are going to try it again ! Didn't learn a thing from the first failed attempt to take over.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Acts 12:4
    I read half of Lamentations night before last. God has bent over backwards to bless them. The apple of his eye. Known the world over as his peculiar people. The envy of the nations. It hurts me that they hurt Him. Resist Him. It gladdens me that many returning Jews that have been saved are evangelizing. Hard to do when you are sheltering from a viral pestilence. May be this disease is from the I WILL that is loose in the world? You can't read Lamentations and not miss the severity of emotion. The last grains of sand in an hour glass fall real fast. Makes me wonder? Let us all pray for a revival. Now when we are confined. I hope you will. Some of Stan Telchin's testimony is on YouTube.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Proverbs 4:23
    People may be awakening but many are falling away too. Grab onto God and hold fast to your faith. It's called the great falling away.
  • Adam - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 4:4
    Hello, good questions. The first sentence is an incorrect assumption. People read the Bible (like you), try to understand it, and if you believe it, then you try to apply it. If you believe in Jesus Christ and choose to follow Him, then by definition you are a Christian (a Christ-follower). So, if you did these things right now you would also be a Christian. So, when you say something like 'matches your particular beliefs' that sounds like an assumption for everyone that isn't true. You're correct that people interpret things differently and part of the reason there are different denominations- often the differences are small. God wants to be sought through effort: Acts 17:27
  • THOMAS CASEY on Zechariah 9:13
    If people are known by their fruit - we must learn to be fruit inspectors
  • Lucia Tagle on John 17:1
    I am a Christian .., I Follow my Lord Jesus but this particular verse may confuse people : the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ is separate not one person . This verse really spoke to me .
  • 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.
  • Maryhartmann on Hebrews 1
    People want to know if we have a GOD then why does he let baby's die etc...?
  • Mick - in Reply on Genesis 1:1
    Nimrod had all the people who spoke one language, build the Tower of Babel, do Nimrod could shoot arrows at God. Then the Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Ghost) said, LET US confound their Language that they may not understand one another's language. Eventually people migrated to other places so they had people speaking the same language. Genesis 11:1-9
    People meant it for evil, but God modified it for good. One planet with countries of the language God gave them. Cultures, food, dress, religions; everything we have today, except for one change. This age has people urged to be bi or multi-lingual in schools. We have internet to learn other cultures and go there.
    Teach Jesus to your kids.
  • Dovie Greer - in Reply on Psalms 91
    Greetings to you, I just want to let you know that I went from 13 pills to zero pills only because of the grace of God and his deliverance for me trusting in him and his powerful word that carry me through. Depression is a powerful word and deep experience with being always SAD, we all are blessed with the Bible, Basic Instruction... and that said there is a whole lot of positives in this world. So my advice to you seek your mind into the word and surround yourself with positive people and separate self from your idol mind and negative people. If God can be for you who can be against you. READ Romans Chapter 8. I was abuse by parent and family and through marriage, I'm now Free Indeed!
  • Mick - in Reply on James 1
    God rested on the 7th day Genesis 2:3
    Jesus ministered and healed people on Sabbath and had Pharisees on his back for it. There is no set law for what day to attend church. Just don't forsake (stop) gathering together which could mean church or small home groups; some elderly watch church on tv faithfully. Read first 2 chapter of Acts which shows the first meetings of Jesus's believers. It's cool.
