"SPIRIT" in Bible Discussions

  • 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.
  • CLARENCE on Psalms 91
    It would pay all of us greatly if we'd meditate Psalms 91 until the Holy Spirit revealed to our hearts the true LIFE that's contained within it.
  • Mickey - in Reply on 1 Timothy 1
    Be careful. We are living in times when our "faith in our leaders/candidates " is being violated. A leader will arise on the scene who will fix a lot of problems and bring peace to our present chaos. Stop looking around at each other and keep your eyes glued to Jesus. Pray to receive the BAPTISM of the Holy Spirit. Jesus sent everyone to the Upper Room On Pentecost to wait for the Holy Spirit.
    We're not going to make it if we just sit around and split hairs over scripture. Do a study on how ancient Israelis perform in
    war. Look how God weeded out Gideons group. Fighting SPIRITUAL war is the same and different. Get some blood in your eye, get in an intercession prayer group of 2 or 3.
  • 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.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Isaiah 8:18
    Jesus became the Son of Man when the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary and conception began. He was Joseph's son as a baby to the community but when he began his ministry, He said he was the son of man.
  • 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.

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
    David, "Water" is referring to flesh birth, Read John:3:6 with John 3:5. Jesus just explained the 2 births to Nic. One flesh, one Spiritual. And Of course, the flesh isn't what makes us born again. Jesus was not presenting these 2 births as joined means of Salvation. He hadn't explained how to be born again yet. He's just explaining what the 2 births are. Which obviously the first is natural birth because if I'm being born again by the spirit evidently I must've had a first birth. Was my first birth by the Spirit? No last time I was born was in the flesh. The Womb. (And it's not far off to say by water because when a baby is about to be born what normally happens? The Water breaks.) cont....
  • 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.
  • Sue Curry on Hebrews 2:4
    How does one discern Signs and Wonders from God above, or from evil spirits?

    Jesus said there will be no signs except the Sign of Jonah. Jesus fulfilled that sign with His Ressurrection. The other Sign of Jonah is preaching the Word.

    So these TV Preachers are faking healings, visions, tongues, etc...

    If there really was a sign, I wouldn't believe it.

    Your response, please!
  • 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.
  • Mickey - in Reply on James 1
    James Guy: please read 1 Timothy chapter 4, particularly verse 3. "FORBIDDING to marry and COMMANDING to abstain from MEATS, which God created to be received with thanksgiving.of them which believe and know the truth
    Verse 1: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in LATTER TIMES some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and Doctrines of Devils."

    You actually pass on barbecue for a glass of protein powder really?! Genesis chapter 1 is God creating so man/woman can enjoy it. He called everything HE created, GOOD. He didn't say oh whoops I made a mistake. Verse 31, HE looked over everything HE made and said it was very GOOD.
    You've been seduced. Repent!
  • 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.
  • David Hummel on Deuteronomy 16:13
    There"s something deep spiritually the Lord must have for the reader concering the feasts. Especially since it"s like Jesus was born in late September (Roman calender) this was time of Feast of Tabernacles.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Isaiah 26:20
    First a testimony. Years ago I asked the Lord: how come we only use 10% of our brains? He spoke to my spirit: "you have the mind of Christ." I knew that Jesus has a 100+ mind. I took that to mean that IN Childlike FAITH we can excel in studies. I am not saying it happens for everyone because you have turn your faith loose; nobody else can do it for you. If God says He's for you, who can be against you?
    1 Corinthians 2:16, Colossians 3:1, Philippians 2:5
  • Benji - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    Let's talk about the verses quoted. First, Born of Water does not mean Water Baptism. "Water" is the flesh birth from your Mom, How do we know? Jesus says in the next verse: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of Spirit is Spirit". We are born sinners(1st birth) then we are born again(2nd Birth). Next Question: How do I get born again 1 John 5: Whosoever BELIEVETH that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. You aren't born again when you're Baptized. Also, read the rest of Mark 16:16: but he that BELIEVETH not shall be damned. So are people damned because they didn't get baptized? No. It is clear that the only reason someone is damned because they did not believe.
  • David - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 1
    Benji, the letter to the Ephesians was written to the church in Ephesus. Acts 19 talks of how that church came to be and in verse 5 they were baptized. They were saved by grace through the faith they had by believing and obeying the gospel of Jesus Christ. Also, the Gospel according to Mark and the story of the thief on the cross took place during the time of the Old Testament when all the Jews simply had to believe in their Messiah to be saved. Remember the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, "Except a man be born of water and Spirit he cannot enter the kingdom Of God," and, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." Peace be unto you in Jesus' name.
  • AzarYahu Ben Eliyahu - in Reply on Leviticus 11
    Yahusha= j-sus said in ps. (40:6) concerning this matter and in (ish.53:5-8) did away with animal sacrifices Hosea 6ch. tells us why they were taking the almighty yah for granted... no one likes to be taken for granted... and in act's 10ch. he told peter don't call man common or unclean... and if you keep reading for contextual understanding because he fill them with his setapart spirit= ruach it was not food yahuah was concerned with but man his creation for he told us what to eat in Leviticus 11ch and says "i change not." we have changed! did yahusha= j-sus every eat anything unclean? no! if he did he would have been a sinner and he was without sin (ish.65:1-7; 66:17) is a future judgment
  • People keep saying this is for the Israel. Who do you think Israel is today; where did the ten tribes go? And weren't the gentiles adopted into the tribes of Israel.
    Paul makes repeated references to adoption into the house of Israel through faith: "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his" (Romans 8:9). And again: "Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises" (Romans 9:4).
  • Carolyn Jordan on 2 Chronicles 7:14
    God is amazing, He open up his hand and satisfied the desired of every living thing, Glory to his name. He also searches heart and he knows the mind of the spirits. He all knowing. Bless his name. He the father of glory. I just can't stop praising him.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Romans 3:14
    It's called an unclean spirit. When our guard is down and we hear too much worldly input; it squishes out of us. Ask forgiveness from everybody who heard it. It's spiritual warfare. Put on that helmet of salvation :)
    I go on YouTube and watch some Mario Murillo sermons. You'll feel better.
  • Warren on 2 Kings 2:24
    Theres a deeper meaning to this i think than understood by those who commented before me. Correcting "little"children I know is necessary, but to be torn up by a couple of she bears, I think deserves a little study and understanding correlating spiritual and physical text. sometimes it's one or the other , sometimes its both, just saying. God bless you and your families.
  • Mickey - in Reply on Leviticus 21:14
    Genesis 2:16-17 God put Adam in the garden and told him he could of every tree EXCEPT the tree of the knowlege of good and evil. He was warned that if he did he would die. Spiritually. Later Eve was talked into it by the serpents deceit. He tempted her with food. Also she desired to be wise. She ate it & got Adam to eat it too. Then they tried to cover it up. Deceit. God wasn't being mean to them. They willfully trusted a talking, lying, snake! Their spiritual connection died. It took Jesus's death on the cross of Calvary to reconnect spiritual life. We must be born again. Praise the Lord!
  • Cristy2020 - in Reply on Revelation 6
    What?? I assume you are an american, if I am wrong forgive me but you cannot assume everything is about America.God has a plan that He will allow to run its course, when He needs to intervene He does and He will. We as Spirit filled believers need to stay the course as Paul said, be fervent in prayer redeeming the times, spread the gospel help save as many souls due to a rampant Satan who knows his time is short. Let us be faithful, the times are evil and we need to prepare, get ready while we have the time. In one stroke, the churches around the world are shut..the fight has really begun, we will be under attack, but let us not waver in making ours an election that is sure..Peace..
