"WORLD" in Bible Discussions

    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!

    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
  • Tough times are ahead.May we as christians respond as christ and not the world.Victory is Gods and we will endure to the end.
  • Charley on Revelation 20:3
    excuse me there are no apostles today if you claim you are an apostle

    did you actually see the lord jesus christ face to face when he rose again

    from the dead? answer is obvious so therefore you are not an apostle,

    nor false prophets which are many today, the bible says to try the spirits

    whether they are from GOD for many false prophets have gone out into

    the world.1st John 4-1

    When you except Christ, when you take him into your heart, this is your baptism! You will be baptized with fire. Your soul will identify immediately with his holy spirit! The actual water baptism as Christ commands is when you make it public! A public confession, before the world! Before the angels of God! Water baptism is a declaration that you have died and risen again in the spirit of Christ resurrection. It is not true that you are required to have water baptism! If it were true, we would have to physically die before we could receive the spirit of God! And that is not true! The spirit of God is very much alive! These things you will know when he comes for you.

    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)?

    Chris: You are absolutely RIGHT! Romans 12:2 And be no conformed to this world. but be ye transformed by (through) the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. When reviewing the above scripture verse 22 of Luke 16 the angels carried him. I believe that GOD has angels to what he instructs. Ezekiel 10:18-19. verse 23 of Luke 16. " the rich man also died " I wonder if the the rich man blasphemed ( that is another scripture within the bible the WORD of GOD the GOD in the form of JESUS would send a person to hell for. Also within verse 24 we see , he cried and goes through family lineage he confesses and gives honor to GOD the Father and his torment continues. Also within that verse he reflect on the knowledge he learned and request for the person he disregard to give him water. The rich man recognizes where he will live for eternity. That provides the TRUTH of the LIVING WORD OF GOD that GOD ignited his cognitive remembrance so the rich man is tormented

    You bring up a valid prespective. To the WORD of GOD. I believe that and after researching the WORD OF GOD. It provides specific instructions within the old testament of the proper way of disposing of dead people and their remains. I have to find it the scripture. Now it is 2021 the cremation would logically be safer. Because of the world and the nature of it. Also I think cremation also sends a bible prespective and sight to the Abraham and Lazarus. The cremation of 2021 is very different I believe from bible times. The TRUTH of current world.The cultivation of land is to be preserved. I think. Abraham stood his post within the scripture when speaking the word of GOD and the use of the word son and the reflection of his meanness and what he did to the Lazarus. Hell is real. Also Chris there is an art depiction of GOD and the TRUTH and HELL at 1stDIB it is from Italy,circa 1890 called Mannequin. We can see the scripture. 7:03 AM

    Comments by Alex about John 1 v 13 KJV . Its actually speaking of a new Creature which is the H.G. our new INNERMAN. Its he that is Preordained before the world was NOT US .God wd not preordain satan our old adamic nature .Its that Christ that is born in US that was preordained before the world was . Thats y John said he that cometh after me is preferred before me. Thats the H.G that comes after us via the seed of Christ not our old adamic nature that is gona be destroyed with his baptism of fire and the H.G. My lil children of whom i travail in birth till Christ is formed in you,Its that Christ that is formed in us that was preordained before the world was, not our old adamic nature aka as the OLD MAN THE FLESH ,God's enemy is our OLD Adamic nature that is in rank with satan. God wd not preordaine satan , our old adamic nature. The only one preordained before the world was is Christ and his seed that is gona be planted in the hearts of everyman after the book is opened which is the NEW COVENANT. An Israel of God When Jesus will sow that good seed in the hearts of every man . God says he will know them ALL from the least to the greatest, Not like the old covenant .They shall no more teach their neighbor or their friends know the Lord ,They shall ALL KNOW ME AND THEIR SINS AND INIQUITIES WILL I Remember NO MORE. This is a much different covenant then the old covenant ,Thats y Jesus was saying if i be lifted up i will draw ALL MEN UNTO ME . Thats y that image in Daniel 2 is destroyed even tho it had a head of gold. It was not perfect,thus when that which is prefect is come that which is done in part will be done away with . k later
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 18
    That's a great question Danae. It is one that has brought on many discussions & ideas over the years.

    My belief is this: you're right that Mary & Joseph were ordinary human beings, though of course special as they were selected by God to bring forth His Son into the World. And in their humanity, they, like us, were born with a sin nature passed onto us from our first parents. And they would have sinned as well, though some would teach that they (specifically Mary) did not, since they were in every respect human as we are.

    So why wouldn't baby Jesus also receive a sin nature like all of us? I see it this way: neither Mary or Joseph contributed to the conception of the babe. That is, Joseph certainly wasn't the father & Mary did not contribute her ovum to this conception. The Bible says in Luke 1:35, "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God."

    I understand this verse to say that God, by His Spirit overshadowed Mary & placed this Holy Seed (one entirely from God without human intervention) into Mary's womb. So this Seed had not the nature that is passed down through mankind - it is a pure & Holy Seed. So couldn't God just zap Jesus onto the Earth & avoid all this human involvement? Well, the Scriptures speak of this Holy One coming, Who would be the Messiah, born in humanity (2 Samuel 7:12,13; Isaiah 7:14; Micah 5:2), so Jesus was born in fulfilment of all Scriptures, even the Sacrifices which spoke about His redemptive work. Yet, Jesus' Birth was without a sin nature so that He could ultimately be the Perfect Spotless Sacrifice for mankind. So Jesus was tempted of Satan (Matthew 4:1-11), not to commit sin since He had no sin nature, but Satan wanted to cause the sin nature to be a part of Jesus, just as he did to Adam & Eve. But Jesus resisted this attempt & remained pure (Hebrews 4:15).
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 91:7
    Andrew, Are you suggesting Jesus lied about the condition of the rich man and Lazarus, a non fictional account of persons departed this world, as family members are still on Earth? And, neither of the two had been resurrected yet.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 13:8
    Sadly, No. There are many all over the world, especially amongst the tribals in various countries, that the Gospel hasn't gone out to yet. And there are many who have heard of Jesus, but have received information that is wrong & not according to what the Bible teaches. There is some work going on amongst the tribals in India, & may well be also in Africa, South America & East Asia, but that work is very difficult. Firstly, missionaries going to them need to be accepted by the tribe, they have to learn the language & develop a usable script & slowly begin to share the Truths that will free them from idolatrous or animistic beliefs. Many of God's servants are killed at the time of first contact but the Gospel still goes out & many get saved.
  • Sylvia Blade on Revelation 13:8
    Have everyone is this world heard about Jesus Christ?
  • Danae on Deuteronomy 18
    Someone once mentioned to me that Jesus was not born into sin. But since Mary and Joseph were born into the world, they were born into sin, even if they never committed sinned. Doesn't that still mean that both Mary and Joseph were of a sinful nature? And wouldn't that mean that Jesus being born into the world, would be born into sin or born to have a sinful nature even though He is God?
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Philippians 2
    We start out as a child , we except the word for what it is! As we mature and live our life we carry his word with us. I carried a bible most of my life. I still have a very short memory, and have difficulty remembering chapters and verses. So., what I do is try to apply certain things that happen in life to his words. There is nothing that will happen to you, that is uncommon to man. You will soon find out that Satan does not like anyone excepting Christ. This world is his place , this to you will find out. The 3 words I always, always remember, is when He says " Do Not Be Afraid"
  • Alex - in Reply on 1 Chronicles 1
    May i give ya my feelings on the Antichrist, no pun intended. We are all Born ANTICHRIST thats y we must be Bornagain, Of an incorruptible seed Even by the living words of God .God wanted to destroy the whole nation of ISRAEL at 1 time b/c of their AntiGod spirit,There was none righteous no not ONE . Thats y he Rebuked Peter calling him SATAN simply b/c Peter had not been converted just yet . Ya gota realize that mans carnal mind is in rank with Satans head. Remember Jesus said outta of the hearts of man proceeds all manner of Evil. Thats y God wanted to destroyed this whole earth @ 1 time b/c of mans evil nature . except for 8 souls via the ARK,A TYPE OF CHRIST . But all souls that has ever lived comes under the blood of Christ . Thats y Jesus said if i be lifted up ( the blood of the lamb ) I will DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME that has ever lived. Ya gotta realize that the blood of the lamb is the very blood of God Almighty ACCORDING TO Acts 20. Behold the lamb of God Almighty that is gonna take away the SINS OF THE WORLD NO EXCEPTIONS. That AntiChrist Spirit is still in the earth to day . Darkness has covered this earth and gross darkness the ppl ,Jesus said he was the light of the world but he says the night is coming when no man can work impling A time of spritual darkness when no man can work spritually. Churches on every corner but not a sign of Christ or Godliness anywhere . Its just as Jesus said your house is left unto you desolate . We see that great abomination of Desolation ever where. You will NOT see me till you say blessed is he that comes in the NAME OF THE LORD which is the manchild, the H.G. that is gonna rule all nations after that book is opened ,She brought forth A MANCHILD that is gonna rule ALL NATIONS. Then it says NOW is come salvation and the Kingdom of our GOD and the POWER of his CHRIST THE CHILD, MANS FRUIT UNTO GOD. K LEMME GO. Don't forget that NEW COVENANT the book in the right hand of the FATHER,After it was opened they sang a new song .

    How God calls us to himself? The power that draws us unto him , he has a specific plan for us! Personally, even as a child he uses us in certain ways. As we mature and experience the life we have in this world, We are always in the palm of His hand. We may not know it , but he is using us all the time. There is no way for us to know the needs of others, it is only when he moves in us, he uses us! Sin ,will always be Satan's op. to throw us off. Make us feel guilty! Christ understands these things, that is why he came. That, we would be free through his accomplishment in the flesh. This is a great thing he has done for mankind! I would say that Jesus enjoyed his life. His love for others, and what he saw in his children's eyes , could be nothing less than who he is! Blessed are those who have not seen and believe! Christ the same today and everyday!Thanks be to God through our lord Jesus Christ.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on John 10
    The Father, gave Jesus from himself. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself! Jesus declares the Father. The Father and the Son are one! Jesus at the same time calls Him His Father . The unity of the trinity is the foundation of the gospel. We do not serve a monotheistic God! We serve the trinity. In verse 30 he answers your question. Anytime man adds to or subtracts from the word it is for mans design and not Gods. These, 3 cannot be separated. If man must die to preserve these truths . Then we say Amen!
  • James D Swedlund - in Reply on Matthew 8
    Thank you brother Steven I agree with your nice reply also. My brothers in Christ sure have helped me on this subject. Keep sharing the great knowledge God has given to you. I am still learning much daily about the LOVE OF JESUS. I try to give God 3 hours each day in his holy word. Then I share the GOSPEL DAILY with everyone I contact within hearing distance. Most take a LOVE LETTER FROM JESUS; TITLED: GOD'S SIMPLE PLAN OF SALVATION. I pray for you daily with all my brothers and sisters in the world, especially missionaries; that we all will witness daily what Jesus has done for us. I am saved by the blood of the only sinless man born of a virgin Jesus Christ; THE ONE AND ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN.
  • Jay - in Reply on Luke 1:31
    Yes. And Jesus is also a Father to Israel, the church, his body because he is the Son of David. He is the head of the body, and therefore the brain power of the body. He has also given us the power to become sons of God because we believe on his name (John 1:12).

    The church is the New Jerusalem. The ancient nation of Isreal can only access God the Father through Christ, their promised Messiah. If they reject Christ, they have not God the Father (1 John 5:12; 2:23).

    God told me to tell everybody that he is coming and told me to warn the very least among us from the son of perdition (doom), the anti-christ, from Daniel's little horn (the kingdom of Judea). On march 22, 2019, God woke me up about 2:02 in the morning to the sound of the trumpet, followed by the declaration, "Jesus, the Messiah."

    God also told me "The next One World Order will be Communism where the military again will be champion."

    He told me also, "The Beast will come from the Mediterranean" and "When the World Dictator comes he will have a translator with him."

    He has told me many things that I have documented and will share for free when I am done writing.

    Please join me in letting others know that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is coming very soon but before he comes, the anti- christ (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12).

    Those who reject Christ are in opposition to Christ or anti- christ (Judaism and Islam). They are striving over an inheritance from their father Abraham that they can only access through the cross.
  • Steven Spencer Pre-Trib - in Reply on Matthew 8
    Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the "HOUR" OF temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them which dwell upon the earth. You noticed the Lord said he will keep them from the "HOUR", Meaning time of temptation? Now don't that parallel with 1st Thessalonians 5:9?. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. Now i have heard it said that all saints would have to go through the tribulation for purification, Doesn't that render Christ blood shed on the cross inadequate? I thought we were washed, I thought we were hid in Christ, I thought we were sanctified in Christ, why is there need for such purification? what about the saints who has already died in Christ? THE prophets, the Apostles, ect.. I thought Christ was smitten once for our sins, if we were baptised into Christ at conversion,. If we are the body of Christ and going to appointed to wrath wouldn't that be like smitten him again? In Isaiah 53:11 He says: He shall see of the travail of his soul, and be satisfied. Were not appointed to wrath.
  • Dr David M Ward on Isaiah 14:12
    Satan is the Devil's name. Jesus stated this. Lux Ferro is the word in Isaiah 14:12 that the translations of the KJV used out of the Latin Vulgate to get Lucifer. They were wrong and the world has spread this mistranslation of Moring Star into Lucifer aka the Devil for over 400 years. I knew the truth in 1978 when I began researching Morning Star and did not find the Devil but rather the planet Venus. I have a Doctorate in Theology and no good translation has Lucifer in the translation or the word Hell since the Bible was assembled in the 400's and the word Hell did not exist until 705 AD in Germany and Old England and its meaning is a hidden place.
  • Norman Walker - in Reply on Genesis 1
    That is something that I just cannot understand why so many people believe this world evolved and not created by God? This world is so complex and all it takes for me is to just look at it and the Sun. This world has millions of very complex creatures including billions of humans that are different and the Sun has burned at the correct temp. to keep everything on Earth alive and has never ever ran out of fuel!! Never even ran low every since the day it was created so tell me how many things that burn never run out of fuel, non of them they all have to have fuel but the Sun!! Just take a good look at it and if you do not see it was created by God then I am sorry for you. God created the Heavens and the Earth and I so hope I will get to go to Heaven forever and ever! Amen and thank you Jesus and thank you God!!

    Comments by Alex about the Words of our Lord. Addressed to Bill, We cannot make void the Words of our lord Bill by using scriptures that are out of context with what our lord said. Remember our Lord said John baptised you with water but i will baptise you with the H.G. AND FIRE and our God is a consuming fire that is gona consume our old adamic nature . The FLESH And Jesus also said i come to bring FIRE on the earth impling on man which is symbolic of the earth ,the 1st man was of the earth earthly as our God is a consuming fire . Our Flesh is our carnal mind which is in rank with Satan . Thats what is gona be consumed. Remember it was the foreskin ( the flesh ) only that was cast into the fire. The FLESH IS OUR HEARTS thats y he wants to give us a new heart and a new spirit, its the result of his Words which are his Seeds that are gona be sown in our hearts . Bill you are not understanding what JESUS said Every sinner will have their part in the lake of fire, not a maybe but a must simply b/c every man carries the stain and the spot of adam no exceptions thus every man will be baptised with the FIRE of the H.G. and it cannot be negated no matter how religious you are. or how BIG A CHURCH YOU ATTEND. Shame on you bill trying to negate the words of our lord . That lake of fire is for every body , there is not anybody too good for the lake of fire. Our God is a consuming fire but our God is also LOVE. If ya can hear it his wraft is simply his LOVE for humanity . Whom the lord loveth he chasens meaning his baptism of the H.G AND FIRE BUT ITS A GOOD FIRE SIMPLY B/C ITS HIS LOVE .God so loved the world etc. Bill you asked if any souls are lost for eternity and the answer is all adamic natures which are in rank with Satan are lost for ever.its only satan and his angels that are gona be lost for Eternity, Ya remember it was only the forskin that was cast into the fire lost for ever but not the man made in the image of God. ok lemme go.....love ya Bill gbu
  • Adam - in Reply on Ezekiel 7:19
    Dear Cathy,

    A Christian is a Christ follower. That's the literal definition. It's not a one time event, but an active lifestyle. To follow someone is an action. The opposite of that is to not follow or to do nothing. God won't force anyone to be with Him in heaven- He gave everyone freewill to choose for themselves what their priority is. In the New Testament, Jesus spoke a lot of parables about how most people will go to hell and few people will be saved (narrow is the gate). He gave a lot of warnings to people including his followers to avoid sin and keep His commandments. If someone wants to spend eternity and be in heaven this isn't something to be taken lightly. Sin is no joke.

    This life is nothing compared to eternity and people often treat this life like it's everything, like they want power, money, status and that will 'make them happy'. Even though this has been known for countless years people still pursue it. The Bible says such pursuits are worthless. We should invest our treasures in heaven, not on earth. We are to be a light to the world in love and through our actions, not follow the world in sin.

    While genuine Christians are imperfect and sinners and saved by grace, that doesn't mean we should not genuinely try to follow Jesus and obey His commandments. There are lots of verses I could quote in support of this, but these are easily found in reading through the Bible. Romans explains this in greater detail, as does James, etc. God bless.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 8
    I actually took the time to listen to that lengthy teaching on the Pre-Trib Rapture deception. He spoke very well & covered a lot of ground, but failed to be more explicit in certain areas that the pre-tribbers would also hold to.

    a. The Great Tribulation is a special event in history when it is God's Wrath that is poured upon the world of unbelievers. The tribulations that come to us, whether coping with life's demands & challenges or going through various intensities of persecution & to the laying down our lives for the Lord, are not part of God's Wrath, but what comes to us living in a fallen corrupt world ruled by the prince of this World. And on this aspect the YT speaker dwells on. One would need to look at the fact that a believer who has already been freed from the God's condemnation through Christ, would he then have to face His Wrath for his & the world's 'wickedness'?

    b. 1 Corinthians 15:51,52 which ties in with 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 is taken as a separate event to the Day of the Lord not because of the specific events of the dead rising along with the saints to be with the Lord forever, but also what Paul was saying was a Mystery: something unknown or veiled beforehand, being revealed now. Just as the mystery of the Church (Romans 11:25, Ephesians 5:32, 6:19, Colossians 1:27), so the mystery of the catching away that was not unknown before. The speaker never referred to this important point.

    c. The escape of Lot & his family or of Noah & his from the pouring out of God's Wrath was not dealt particularly well by him. He emphasized that they escaped but the unbelievers were destroyed whereas in the Gt. Tribulation, it would not be so, therefore the analogy failed. However, I think that the emphasis is seen to be on the fact that God took out the righteous from the scene of His outpouring Anger.

    These being a few of my observations from his talk, & though quite comprehensive & he being well studied, I remain unconvinced from his presentation.
  • Rod - in Reply on Psalms 96:2
    Our Salvation is paid for us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ on the cross, and all we need to do is repent, and believe, (Faith) and live a Godly life, knowing that when we fail, and we all do, we need to ask for forgiveness in prayer on a daily basis, and also give thanks for all the blessing we also receive on a daily basis.

    In Galatians, chapter 5 Paul explains the fruits of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit, I pray this helps,

    1 John 1:7 "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

    1 John Chapter 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

    2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith.

    Galatians 5:16 "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh."

    17; "For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would."

    Galatians 5:22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,"

    Galatians 5:23 "Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

    Comments about who God will not save Bill, its only our old adamic nature that is in rank with Satan, Mans carnal mind is in rank with satan that y he called peter Satan, as Jesus said out of the hearts of man proceeds all manner of evil. But God is no respector of Persons .The only reason he loved Jacob but hated Esau was b/c Jacob was symbolic of the 2 nd man Christ but Esau was symbolic of the 1st man Adam a corruptible being but the 2 nd man is an incorruptible being Christ Jesus and thats y we must be bornagain of his incorruptible seed which is the seed of Christ. that living word OF God. In Adam we all died but in Christ that 2 nd Adam we wil all be made alive. By the disobedience of 1 man Adam sin came into the world but by the obedience of 1 man Christ Jesus sin will be done away with . When i see the blood i will pass over you. Behold the lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world. Bill i hope ya understand that its everybody that needs the blood of the LAMB. Without it we wd all be lost. But behold the lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the whole world. ok lemme go
  • Lawrence P Beduhn on Revelation 17

    The seven headed beast of Revelation 17:

    "Here is the mind which has wisdom"

    The heads are symbolic of seven kingdoms, starting with the beast of Daniel 7;

    1st < Babylon

    2nd < Medo-Persia

    3rd < Greece

    4th < Pagan Rome

    5th < Papal Rome; the little horn

    ("that was" & "is not" & "yet is")

    6th < "one is"

    The woman that rides the beast is in captivity at the time of John's vision, AFTER receiving the deadly wound from the (atheist) beast from the bottomless pit [Revelation 11:7]. This is the beast of THE TIME AND PLACE of John's vision IN THE WILDERNESS.

    (Meaning that John is in the wilderness in his vision and not physical on Patmos, and he sees a beast that would come up from out of this wilderness. Read Job 38:26.)

    7th < "is not yet come"

    At the time of John's vision in the wilderness, this head of the beast was yet to come; this is the beast from out of the earth [Revelation 13:11];

    (And he shall exercise all of the power of the first beast...) when this beast will speak like a dragon.

    This beast must continue a short time, as per the others before him.

    I believe by the testimony of Jesus, that we are now living in that "short time".

    The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

    {Revelation 17:8}

    :11...even he is the eighth, AND IS OF THE SEVEN, and ascends out of the bottomless pit and goes into perdition.

    --There are seven heads at the time of John's vision, five kings/heads/beast are fallen, so this eighth is of the five kingdoms...."that was"...."and is not"...."yet is" AND received a deadly wound; AND his deadly wound was healed.

    This wound is the loss of her (the woman/church that rides the beast.) temporal sword (also her captivity), which is the earthly secular world kingdom.
