    Jesus, suffered the cross to save us because we could not save ourselves, we sinned in the garden, and as sinners we couldnt save ourselves, you can't go to god and bond ourselves out with stolen money ,lol

    and we want to wait to have Intimacy but finding it hard

    because we are so attracted to each other. how do we do this that we stay kept till we get married.

    Also once you get married you should try to stay that way. Divorce can be only done if one of you commits adultery.

    Matthew 19:9 And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery

    I dont see anything wrong with kissing, hugging, cuddling if you're trying to get married. The bible doesn't say they are wrong ( Romans 14 Paul also states that all things are premissable for us yet not helpful, in the proper context, which is things that are not stated as sins) Sex before marriage is fornication which is the sin.

    The bible doesn't say that you gotta have papers done to get married, unless its 100% mandatory in your country. Its one man one woman that just decide to get married or become "one flesh" as Jesus said. Adam didnt have to sign papers as far as i know or other people in the bible, nor a ceremony.

    If its that hard just pray to God that he allows you to get married as fast as he wills. If you need to you can just get married by law and after a while have a ceremony. It can be done in a few hours i think.

    Hope this helps.

    Romans 10:9-10 is how you can get saved.

    How did Israelites become slave in Egypt?
  • Dianne - in Reply on Exodus 13
    A new ruler took over Egypt that did not know joseph theres more read Exodus chapter one.
  • Chris - in Reply on Exodus 13
    To learn that answer, one would need to go back a fair bit - back to Genesis chapter 37. You probably know the story, or can read about it from there, but in a nutshell, Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers to the Midianites who took Joseph into Egypt. When in Egypt, these slave traders sold Joseph to Potiphar, an officer to Pharaoh. Joseph served him faithfully except when Mrs. Potiphar accused Joseph of attempted rape & so Joseph also became a prisoner.

    In time, Joseph, being blessed by God was called to interpret the Pharaoh's dream which resulted in Joseph being honoured with a high position & even given an Egyptian wife. Joseph was still a young man at 30 yrs of age when there was a general famine throughout, but Joseph had the wisdom to store up grain for such an occasion so even other countries round about came to him to buy grain. With that, Jacob, Joseph's father, sent his sons (Joseph's brothers) also to Egypt to buy food, & they didn't realize who they would have to deal with: their brother whom they sold into slavery. But Joseph forgave them their sin & even Pharaoh invited Joseph's family to move over to Egypt & settle there. However, Jacob was old & died & in time, Joseph himself died at 110 yrs of age & was buried in Egypt.

    So Egypt became the home for Israel (= Jacob), but the old Pharaoh also died & a new Pharaoh came into power, "a new king that knew not Joseph" ( Exodus 1:8) & instead of continuing to enjoy freedom & prosperity in Egypt, all the children of Israel became slaves to the Egyptians & even harder bondage. But God still had a plan to free Israel from bondage, so Moses comes onto the scene, even avoiding death as a baby by God's providence. And you know the rest of the story.

    On EXODUS 13:17

    The Word of God is God ( John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation ( 2 Peter 1:20).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting, repentings) is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God ( Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived ( Rev. 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive ( Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you ( Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ ( Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ ( Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world ( 1 John 5:4; Rev. 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived ( Rev. 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it ( Matthew 7:14).

    LUKE 15:10. LIKEWISE, I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OF GOD OVER ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH.

    Thank for this. I got a real blessing from reading your comments.
  • Andy G van den Berg - in Reply on Exodus 13
    Stephen,

    Thank you for your reply. Please do understand we are just His sevants, called to spread His word and the teachings of Jesus Christ according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John14:17). Please note the word 'cannot'. Also, please do understand that, while it confounds many, blessings and salvation can also come from God as a result of our message.

    In His Service,

    "And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt." As the Lord Jesus told Nicodemus, "We speak what we do know, and testify what we have seen.." We have to show by our life what God has wrought in us; that by grace and knowledge teach them to others.
  • A disciple on Exodus 13
    "And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the Lord's law may be in thy mouth.." Not for wrapping cords around your arm, or for fixing a little box on your forehead, as is the custom of the Jews; but that the Word may be in your heart and in your mouth to expound these things, with the sign of your good works and the testimony for a memorial!
  • A disciple on Exodus 13
    Darrell; well, I DON'T THINK that if we have an unsaved neighbor, who is an ass, we are supposed to break his neck. But as it is a beast of burden, and an unclean beast; and it has to do with teaching spiritual things around redemption and the coming dominion under the Elect; perhaps it is to solemnly and dramatically portray the necessity of our redemption; that there is no other reason to exist!
  • Darrell on Exodus 13
    Exodus 13:13 can someone email me an explanation of this verse.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Exodus 13
    An ass donkey is a beast of burden. More needed than a sheep, I would guess. Did you know that a horse and an ass can mate. They will produce a mule which can not reproduce.
  • Dewey J on Exodus 13
    Randy, we must come to grip with and understand the firstborn from both the old and new testaments. John 1:1 says, " in the beginning was the Word-Jesus- and the Word-Jesus- was with God and the Word-Jesus-was God ". Col. 1:15-Jesus- " Who is the imagine of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. Col. 1:18 says, "And he-Jesus-is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead that in all things he might have the preeminence ". Emphasize the firstborn from the dead this gives all Christians great faith that we all also shall rise from the dead by the power of Jehovah through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Old testament firstborn lead us to the New testament resurrection of Jesus Christ as the firstborn or the first to rise from the dead never to die again. God bless us all and in the Understanding of his Word. Glory be to Jehovah in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!

    you got to use your blessing
  • Randy on Exodus 13:2
    Hey great article about the firstborn. I 'm sincerely serious here I still am having trouble correlating Jesus as the firstborn His calling And the use of the firstborn in the old testament. I know there is an exciting truth I am missing here. Please have mercy on me and send me an email Further explaining this truth. The Jehovah 's, i.e. YAHWEH 's witnesses, say that Jesus is the firstborn from the Father, therefore He is 2nd in command, I know the Father and the Son come from eternity past Hebrews 1 1 3 and Col.1 15 19. I understand that as firstborn it means more than born first. Please help me in this dilemma, so I can better proclaim His name. Thank you very much. Sincerely R.J.Rance
  • Pewee Miller on Exodus 13
    The key knowledge of this scripture is "Remember this day " That is what we as human should always do, when God deliver us form any situation, we need to remember. As we go along with our daily activities, we need to take God along with us.
  • Sade Roberson on Exodus 13
    yes the trusting God is key . When Moses led the people out of Egypt him and the people of Israel had to do nothing but walk by faith. Glory in what the Lord had in store and as the Lord bless me to read today and finally see what this scripture was saying Thank you Lord God of Israel for this revelation and as i go threw my walk of faith in Christ at the bless age of 14 let us all pray I faith and love in Christ and Christ alone never fails !!!!

    Trust and obey, there's no other way.
  • Jerry Mofokeng on Exodus 13
    I want to discuss the redemption of first born. The principle here is simple enough. God killed the first born of Egypt but he spared those of Israel. since the first born of Israel were spared they now belong the Lord.
  • Salomão - in Reply on Exodus 13
    It is really a difficult verse to explain, but the Holy Ghost see us through. I felt what Jerry said as the voice of the holy Spirit. Thank you.
  • Bobbie Tunstall on Exodus 13
    Please give me directions in which Moses took his people to the Red Sea. Was East, West, North or South? I would like to know for my Bible study Cl***.
  • HARRY ALLISON and BEAUTIFUL WIFE SHIRLEY. on Exodus 13
    Our goal is to draw others to JESUS. To be salt and be the light, being careful that we don’t get drawn in reversal direction by who we are ministering to… JESUS prepares the hearts of those in need.
  • Essuman kwaku on Exodus 13
    the reasons why God led the Israelites by a winding route to the land of Canaan (the Promised Land) included the following:

    . that the people may be hardened and prepared to take the land, both physically and spiritually.
    . that the people of Israel may see His wonders and power, thereby fearing Him and loving Him to obey and respect His commands.
    . that the people might not give up and return to Egypt when they are confronted with a situation of war on their way to the promised land.

    the Lord may be leading you through this path, be patient, silent, obedient and have faith that He will by all means take you there, your dream land, He knows best. stop murmuring and take it cool!
  • RALPH WATERS on Exodus 13
    2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, [both] of man and of beast: it [is] mine..........IN EGYPT THE FIRSTBORN WAS SACRIFIED..NOW THE FIRSTBORN IS GIVEN TO GOD...IN THIS CASE... THE SECOND STATE IS BETTER THEN THE FIRST..... GOD ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING BETTER FOR US.... SO WHEN YOU THINK ITS BAD..JUST KNOW.. GOD KNOWS WHATS BEST. TRUST AND OBEY AND HAVE FAITH...FOR WE ARE SUPPOSE TO WALK BY FAITH NOT BY SIGHT... FOR WHO HAS THE MIND OF CHRIST.
