    where in the bible that it show Jesus change the Sabbath to Sunday worship
  • Mishael
    GEORGE: In Luke 14:1-6

    The Pharisees were again trying to catch Jesus being too liberal on law issues. This incident happened on a Sabbath day. A guy walks in with dropsy. Jesus asks if it's lawful to Heal (anyone) on the Sabbath day ? Big intake of breath (aha we're going to nail Him!). Jesus heals the guy and let's him leave. Jesus says: which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and WILL NOT immediately pull him out on the sabbath day??

    I say that Jesus is showing us that Church or Sabbath happens when it happens. If you work on weekends and can't get off; if your Church holds services on Wednesday or another weekday; then you can attend on those days.

    God knows your intentions and He knows what days you work. If a fellow church member needs corporate prayer, you'll be available on Wednesdays.

    If He makes exceptions for donkeys and cows, why would He not bless you for assembling together on a Wednesday?

    Underline passages where you see that Pharisee-like plots were foiled by a loving and practical Son of God.

    If you tithe...do it with bliss and happiness on Wednesday.

    Why is it important to read the bible
  • Chris
    Jayden, there are usually two ways that the Bible looked upon. One is for its historical value & for a cursory look for interest's sake. The Bible is rich in history of course, where information & detail is given that is unavailable from other documents or books. So there is value there.

    However, & secondly, for those who are Christians & those seeking to know more about God, His Ways, & dealings in Earth's affairs, the Bible becomes invaluable. The Bible shows us God's love for His creation & His provision for us (both physically & spiritually). It answers most of the questions we have about life & death & gives answers & illustrations of those who have gone through similar struggles to us with temptations & hardships in life. If you think of any question you have about a struggle you might have or a family situation, the Bible will have an answer for you. If you don't read the Bible or you lower its importance in your life, then you won't have God's Mind & Answer for you. Your answer will need to come from within yourself or from another; & there is a much greater risk of being led astray or not being satisfied.

    His Word is no ordinary Book. It was written of course by the hand of men, but the Bible tells us that they were led by God's Spirit to write; 2 Peter 1:20,21: speaks of Prophecy (messages of future events, of which the Bible has many). And some of these prophecies have been fulfilled already, & some are awaiting fulfilment. The Word of God is like my daily Handbook, referred to more than any other material available on my bookshelf. Please spend much time in reading it, & what you don't understand, ask here or at your Church, etc. It is the most important Book you will ever own or read.

    Jayden,

    I think it is important to read the bible in order to grow spiritually in Christ. Growth comes through continuous reading and studying of the scripture. Also, without reading the bible, how are we to know if what we are being taught is true? We have to search the scriptures in order to test all things to see if what is presented to us is the truth. It's just like exercising, if we don't exercise, eventually our muscles will weaken. We grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through a continuous study of His word. There can be no growth without reading and studying. In fact, the bible tells us that when we leave off from studying God's word, we become dull of hearing. In other words, there will be no growth, and the things we learned and once knew, we will begin to forget. That is why I feel it's important to stay in the word.
  • Jonathan
    The Bible is our daily bread. It help us grow spiritually as a Christian. We need to feed on it daily and master it and help us to know God more deeply
  • Linda
    A Disciple, remember that among the heathen were also unbelieving Jews who took their side and denied Christ, their Messiah. They also will be judged with their neighbors and of them only a remnant will go into the Kingdom with Him. :
  • Linda
    I disagree slightly with Betty Weaver. The first part 1-12 was it, God is speaking of the actual King, then He begins in 13. moreover to address the author of the kings heart, and thoughts character, Satan. He declares Satan s beauty and position at the first, then his evilness and great fall from Grace his desire to be like the Most High God and sit in His seat, no mercy will be found for him!
  • Betty Weaver
    Ezekiel 28:1-19.Thus saith the Lord.God is describing satan here.he was a cherub.His beauty ,his knowledge.satan was with GOD in the beginning .he was one of 2 who covered the mercy seat of God.his downfall was he wanted to set on the mercy seat..god describes that satan was the most beautiful equipped with everything.God descibeds what satan is doing.And what God says HE is going to do to satan.
  • Roy Hartsell
    25-26 This is now-This is a prophecy for today. God is about to give Israel part of the land back that he gave to Abraham. [ Psalms 83] is the prophecy that tells all about it...
  • Obbie Beal
    it is a truth (see the above): 'riches' and 'pride' or a combination of the 2 can not be mastered by any human (see the above). WOW! WOW! WOW!
  • Obbie Beal
    Tyrus appears almost identical to the beautiful whore (ridding the beast) found in the book of Revelation.. especially after considering the reason God's wrath is applied to each of them. 2018 may 'get-by' for a second (because of God's Mercy) but 2018 will not get-away. Wow! Wow! Wow!
  • Vincent F ORourke
    Verse 12 to end of Chapter is an indictment from God to/against the Evil Priest, Melchiresha, and all those involved in the Priests' efforts to overthrow God's kingdom. The ultimate penalty is he shall be put to death as a man.
  • Obbie Beal
    GOD's warning to all those that cross the line GOD warned us not to cross. Once anyone cross that line we are lifted up with a 'distructive-pride'; This 'pride' caused Tyrus, and ..., and ..., to receive GOD's warth... In 2017 the nations have cross that line, therefore we / the nations shall not excape GOD's warth... Thank GOD for the Blood of Jesus Christ that save, protect, keep. WOW, WOW, WOW!
  • BSP
    Verse 17: This verse is a good reminder to not allow beauty or natural abilities and talents to cause us to become proud. That was Satan's downfall and we do not want to imitate him in any way.
  • A disciple
    25-26 The Lord Jesus Christ will make Himself known to the House of Israel by coming in power and great glory to execute judgment and vengeance upon all her evil neighbors which despise her. The whole Testimony of the Scriptures is Christ the King of Israel and of all the earth: when Jesus makes Himself known to His brethren, then will the Nations also be delivered from the covering of darkness.
  • Bob Stone
    I believe he is talking about the Devil (Satin) when he refers to the King of Tyra's. Reference is made to him having been in the Garden of Eden and that he was highly respected in heaven until the Lord found his iniquity (Pride). This may having some reference to the tribulation. I am interested in what other people think. This needs to be read with Isaiah 14.
  • Word 76
    Jay you need to read. This is speaking of a cherub that's not a man! This Tryus which means rock and in the song of Moses Deuteronomy 32 their rock is not our Rock. This cherub was in the garden of Eden, that old serpent. This cherub was at the Holy Mountain of God right at the Throne of God is what it's saying. Wiser than Daniel, come on how much information does a person need to see the truth here.
  • Irene123
    To Charley on Ezekiel 18 - At the bottom of every 'comment' page (or top) there 'commentary' by Matthew Henry. I read it just now and the Lord's spirit let me know what Henry says is - true. M. Henry was 'led' of God; Just like King Cyrus was in rebuilding the Temple.
  • Jay
    Ezekiel 28. Is not talking about any devil or satan. It is talking about a king and the city. Lucifer is written only once in the book of isaiah. The word lucifer means morning star, i will not get into deep detail about this false teaching. When jesus said that the devil was a liar from the beginning , now what is the beginning, simple at the first start, from his creation. He was never an ange

    Miguel Cotrich Satan comes first 6th trump antichrist means instead of Christ scripture disguised as Christ first seal he comes crown and bow looks like Christ on a white horse and Rev. Also tells us looks like the Lamb of God with powers speaks like the dragon because he is the dragon kicked out of heaven to deceives world into worshipping him as Christ except election. Christ 7th trump Fire hail
  • Andrea
    Deep so very deep that I had to actually re read it again. Wow thank you all for your input it really helps with really understanding. To all my brothers and sister in Christ in this day keep looking to the hills. Love you all

    history-Satan. Using history explains a truth. Tyrus means rock. Deuteronomy 32 the song of Moses tells us their rock is not our Rock. Satan tried to steal the mercy seat and in doing so he gathered a third of Gods children in his political party Revelation 12 and God got mad wash the earth clean Jeremiah 4 vs 22 to 27He turned lights on God sows His seed to earth and the wicked one sows his. Matthew 13 vs 36 to 44
  • Fixon Mkanda
    These verses are awesome and quite revealing
  • Miguel Cotrich
    I AGREE THAT LUCIFER IS IN CONTROL OF THIS EARTH BUT THAT IS ON ONLY FOR A TIME BEING YOU SEE JESUS CHRIST WHEN HE COMETH TO THIS EARTH HE WILL JUDGE LUCIFER, AND HIS ANGEL.THEN JESUS CHRIST WILL DEAL WITH THE PEOPLE NOT OF THIS WORLD HE WILL JUDGE THE PEOPLE NOT OF THIS WORLD BY MAKING SURE THAT THEY DID 4 THINGS ONE FOLLOW THE LIGHT TO THE PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 2. THAT YOU GET THE POWER WHICH IS THE HOLY SPIRIT OF THE FLESH WHICH THAT WOULD BE THE SPIRIT OF GOD 3.THAT YOU PUT EVERY THING TO DEATH, 4.THAT YOU MINISTER THE TRUTH. THEN JESUS CHRIST WILL JUDGE THE WORLD WITH THE PEOPLE NOT OF THIS WORLD, THEY WILL JUDGE THE SMALLER MATTERS.JESUS CHRIST IS COMING TO SAVE THE WORLD NOT CONDEM THE WORLD. JESUS CHRIST DOES NOT WANT THE BURDEN TO JUDGE THE WORLD BY HIMSELF SO HE IS GOING TO USE THE ELECTED ONE 'S, AND CHOSEN ONE 'S TO JUDGE THE WORLD.JESUS CHRIST WILL ALSO JUDGE THE BIGGER MATTERS OF THE WORLD.THIS IS THE TRUE WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST, AND HIS SERVANT. BY MIGUEL.A.COTRICH.
  • Bob K for verse 19
    God will put a stop to it, but Satan is a terror to this world! He is a terrorist-the supreme terrorist on earth-and he rules over all terrorist! How many people understand that? He is really the one behind all the violence and terrorism and evil in our world today!
  • Bob K for verse 12
    In this verse, Satan and the king are used interchangeably. It means that Satan was really the King of Tyre! God talks about the king of Tyre and Satan the devil almost as one and the same, because Satan rules over Kings!
  • Moya
    This is referring to an earthly King whose destruction would lead to the release of Israelites from Bondage.People 's problem is we try to sensationalise what those earlier evangelisers failed to understand which they now take as good teaching
  • Bob K for verse 13
    But this clearly is not speaking of a mortal man. This is referring to Lucifer, who became Satan.
  • Harrison
    i think verse 1 to 10 talks about a descendant of satan who would be extremely powerful in terms of world power but would be alterly destroyed in the end.and verse 11 to 20 talks about the creation,appointment,sin and destruction of satan.
