Discussion for Genesis 1

  • A disciple
    Dear Alex; The Word of God is NOT given by everyone's opinion, and IS NOT according to anyone's imagination to interpret. But the Word of God is the Truth, is inspired by the Spirit of Truth, and understood by the good and honest heart that is presided over by the Spirit of Truth. The Calling Out Of The Graves is LITERAL! Everyone that has been born in the world will be brought up from the grave!
  • Alex
    Imo when he said all that are in th GRAVES shall hear HIS VOICE he was refering to the church world,Ya remember he told the scribes and pharisees they were hypocrites and GRAVES that appear not, and your house is left unto you desolate, All of the churches are desolate,which answers to the GREAT ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION IMPLIES SPRITUAL GRAVES A TIME OF SPRITUAL DARKNESS ETC, Gross darkness etc.
  • A disciple
    Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness! If we have something shown to us by God in His Word; we ought not to think too much of ourselves about it, for therein is the devil's snare! If we hear or know of someone speaking against the truth, then our duty is to make inquiry to see just precisely how it is so; and if it is so, bring forth the Scriptures wisely according what is needed.
  • I am.
    Christians never speaks of genesis 1/29 or Ezekiel 47/12 I wonder why. how can people be so blind children of the lost.
  • Alex
    Jesus said John baptised you with water but but i will baptise you with the H.G. and fire Jesus knew that all his disciples had been water baptised but he warns them IF I WASH THEE NOT YOU WILL HAVE NO PART WITH ME Which speaks volumes of a greater INTERNAL baptism OF THE h.g.When God showed Peter that SHEET WITH ALL THE unclean animals THAT WAS THE CHURCH THAT WAS MADE CLEAN BY HIS BLOOD,NOT H2O.

    PSALM 29:3 THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS UPON THE WATERS THE GOD OF GLORY THUNDERETH THE LORD IS UPON MANY WATERS JOHN 6:63 IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH THE FLESH PROFITETH NOTHING THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU THEY ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE
