  • The word Kuria I believe is not the ladys' name in 2nd John. From what I've read John is simply addressing his letter to a chosen spiritual lady.

  • Jim on Ephesians 1
    God sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior. Through the spilling of blood he gave up the holy ghost and die. By Jesus being so humbled told the truth. People didn't want to hear that, especially when the Pharisees, sanducees and scribes couldn't phantom who Jesus is. The people wanted everything that this world have to offer. The word of God they couldn't understand because it compromised their status. Just like today people go about their business trying to get as much gain as possible. But forgery to say thank you Lord for another day. In reference to Ephesians 1.

    Douglas Russell, Please read my comment in here. We must receive Christ by repenting. That means turning away from a wrong way of living & truly living for our Lord Jesus every day of our life. We can not do this on our own. It's why we need the Holy Spirit. It's a spiritual birth from above. We must surrender our life unto him. Let go & A!low him to lead our life thru the Holy Spirit. (Holy Ghost & the Holy Spirit are the same). Holy Spirit will lead you to all truth. If we are not lead by the Spirit, we are none of his. Romans 8. Let no man tell you different. Acts 2:38 is the New Testament salvation thru faith, love & obeying the gospel. This is all in the Bible. I learned this bc I was so hungry for God's truth. I still am. He loves everyone but it doesn't mean everyone will be saved. Stay in prayer each day. Ask him for his help. Thank him. Yes give thanksgiving into Christ. We are in the world but we must not love the world. now w the indwelling of God's Spirit, soon you will have the fruits of the Spirit. Peace, love, joy, faith, longsuffering, meekness, kindness. Praise him daily. He loves to be praised & he deserves to be praised & worshiped. God is a Spirit & we must Worship him in Spirit & in truth. This is also biblical. Amen

    Beautiful wisdom! Thank you for reminding me the importance of daily praising the Lord.

    He truly deserves all praise and glory no matter what is going on here on planet earth.

    He created it and knows all about it!!!

    God bless you and thank you again!

    I meant John 3: 3-8 is where Jesus spoke in red letter words about water & the Spirit are needed to enter into the kingdom of God. Thank you Jesus
  • Mari B on Ephesians 1
    Jesus spoke in John 3-8 about the water & Spirit & how it is needed to enter into the kingdom of God. After we read the gospels we then go to the book of Acts. We must obey Acts 2:38. It's for everyone. The Bible from Acts & on is for the people that came from the book of Acts; the baptized, Holy Spirit filled,saved people/churches. First obey Acts 2:38 before you can claim Romans 9:10 or any other verse I was water baptized yet I didn't receive the Holy Ghost until nearly 3 yrs later. You will speak in tongues as the sign of receiving the Holy Ghost. It's a heavenly language known into God. Also in Acts 1:8 says you will receive power once the Holy Ghost has come upon you. Its a wonderful journey. We must know our God & obey the gospel. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 kjv is clear on these words. Amen

    Marie, Romans 9:10? Or, did you mean Romans 10:9?

    Do you also have a supporting Scripture that the Gift of Tongues is a 'Heavenly language known only to God'? The Acts 2:4 account of Pentecost Day seems to indicate that the Tongues spoken was not Heavenly but Earthly & Paul's teaching on this in 1 Cor 14 was specifically to show that Tongues was an unknown (unlearned) language to the speaker but may be known to another present or to be used when one gifted with its Interpretation was present. Without an interpretation, the (unlearned) Tongue was not to be used however it could be used in prayer to God only, where "my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful" (v 14). This seems to me that apart from its use in prayer, the Tongue should only be used when someone who understands/interprets it is present.

    I would be interested to learn what Scripture you know that can support what you've said.

    Mari B.

    I differ from you somewhat on your explanation of Acts 2:38. To my understanding you are receiving the Holy Spirit upon the new birth. The birth by water in John 3, is the fleshly birth.( uh oh my water just broke) and then born of the Spirit is the second birth. I believe verse 6 says that which is born of flesh is flesh and that which is born of the spirit is spirit. That is an explanation by Jesus on the new birth. I do believe that you have to be born again to enter the kingdom of Heaven. But also the water baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. Water baptism has nothing to do with salvation. No where in the gospels does it speak of any baptism that seals your salvation. The Word does say in Acts 4:12 There is salvation in no other, there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. Salvation is the gift of God and the shedding of Jesus blood for the remission of our sins. Christ and Christ alone.
  • Mari B - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Water baptism is definitely needed. Read Mark 16:16. 1 Peter 3:18-20. Romans 6:3-8. There's more. Even the parting of the Red sea was a type of baptism. Same as Noahs Ark. Read it for yourself. It's all in the Bible. The Bible says you must be born again to SEE the kingdom. But water & the Spirit are needed to enter into the kingdom of God. In the book of Corinthian 11, it speaks of the heavenly language. It is a language that only God knows but it's me talking to him from my heart. If I know not what to pray then this is where the Ho!y Spirit comes in to help. So many ppl think they have the Holy Ghost but do not. Study what the Bible says. Do not go to a commentary for answers.Do not Go to YouTube for answers. Go to God. Many churches out there do not teach all truth. Only partial. This is a matter of making it to heaven or not. Take no chances. You will receive power once the Holy Ghost has come upon you. I speak the truth & you were told what I wrote is truth. Pray & ask God for the a revelation. Open your heart for truth. Baptism has always been in Jesus name from the early church days. Research that truth.

    LORD thank you for giving us your Holy Spirit and its only by your grace that we haven't been consumed, and you are still offering to us your Only Begotten Son in whom you are well-pleased. Praise the Lord!!!
  • Sara K on Ephesians 1
    Dear Douglas Russel Jr., Oh, how I hope since you've reached out here, that you have come to understand The Good News of Christ's Love and what it means to be saved by God's Amazing Grace :)

    1 Corinthians 15:1-4 "...I declare unto you the GOSPEL...By which also ye are saved...How that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. :)

    *Because of what God says in His Word, the Bible, I believe*:

    that man is saved from eternal punishment and is justified freely by grace through faith in the sacrificially shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary

    (Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).

    that Salvation is a completely undeserved free gift bestowed upon all who simply believe (Romans 5:12-21, 4:5).

    during this dispensation of grace, every person who believes the gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24) is eternally saved from God's wrath.

    All saved people during the dispensation of grace are eternally saved and complete in Christ (Romans 5:1, Colossians 2:10).

    Salvation is the work of God and not the work of man. Therefore, it is impossible for anyone who has trusted in Christ to ever be lost again. AND ...We are sealed by the Holy Spirit and are not our own -- we are bought with a price

    (Colossians 3:1-4, Romans 8:29-39, Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:30, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

    Space here is running low. I hope to share more in another comment if allowed.

    As the Apostle Paul repeatedly said:

    " Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ " ... Amen.
  • Michael on Ephesians 1
    Where in the bible(revelations) does it say GODS gonna rejuvenate the earth .and make heaven on earth.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Read the last 3 chapters of the book of revelation
  • Anne on Ephesians 1
    Romans 10:9 says "That if thou halt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead thou shalt be saved." Vs. 10 " For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Vs.13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." This is the plan of Salvation .
  • Durbin on Ephesians 1
    this is my memory verse... but yeah its pretty neat
  • Douglas Russell jr on Ephesians 1
    I want to be christian and want to know about Jesus christ and Savior
  • Maimaualofa Olomua - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Love God like he did to us and get ready to see more trials coming your way. Christian life is not easy. I have learned a lot since the day I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I have been through many storms and with God anything is possible. Trust Him, do not lean on your own understanding, because His plans are to prosper us not to harm. Lets get your full armor of God on and lets keep going for our purpose in life to glorify God alone.
  • Evanorris7yahoocom - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    All you have to do to receive Jesus Christ into you life is to be sorry for your sins. Get on your knees and ask Him to forgive you of you sins. The plan of salvation is very easy. He love you so just love Him back by living a good life after you receive Him in your heart. He said He would never leave you so when you have a problem take it to Him. He Is our helper.
  • Margaret Davis - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Douglas Russell Jr., If you died today do you know where you would go ? Do you believe we are all born sinners ? But through the gift of God his son Jesus spilled out his blood as the altemint sacrifice covering our sins. By faith in Jesus and all he is we are born again to new creatures, the children of God. I pray if you do not know Jesus as your savior you will find a KJV teaching church
  • Leslie - in Reply on Ephesians 1

  • Laci-Ann on Ephesians 1
    Many people don t like what the word of god says. You know that the only way you could ever do the work of god is to make the right decision for him
  • Margaret Davis - in Reply on Ephesians 1
    Laci-Ann, I have no bad intent, just thought you might want to know that the God of life is always capitalized. Little "g" God is used when you are referring to other gods.
  • Margie - in Reply on Ephesians 1
