    Bible cometh by hearing the word of god! jesus said: man shall not live by bread alone...but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of god. (god bless sister).

    To Peter, et. al. (and others),

    To get a true understanding of the Bible, you must first pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you (your mind) into all truth. We cannot read the Bible like any other book. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned (understood) 1 Cor. 2:14, last part. If you don't ask Him into your study, there is an enemy who will be very happy to show you things the way he wants you to see them. You don't want that. That is called deception, and it's on the highest order, coming from him. The devil knows his KJV of the Bible better than most people. I will pray for all of you so you will remember to ask Him - first, to lead & guide you as you study & read. The Bible (KJV) is God's word to all of us. We Must read it and understand what we read so that it will become a part of our daily lives. We also need a very serious relationship with God (in these last days), to have Jesus' Righteous character given to us. We must Know God to be saved. John 17:3. I hope this comment helps.

  • Peter for verse 1
    I don'i read much because of my bad eye sight ; but I always thought that God put together leaves to make a covering for the private areas of Adam and Eve;. Actually, He used skins.
  • Peter- message to you for verse 25
    that is not true
  • Peter for verse 25
    thank you

    I now know that the Adam made used the leaves to make a covering and that God used skins to do so.

    Thank you and please comment to me again of you think that I have what God made wrong.
  • Peter
    a continuation to the previou message

    and so it would happen slowly

    as a perfect earth just can suddenly stop from being perfect by creating weeds and when God says he is going to do something; he sure does it; and so why not take what you gave to man and bring it right to the opposite to teach him for the benefit of man. He did it with the flood and so why not continue to make it difficult if they continue to sin and we know that every time the earth is threaten with plagues etc; after that there is usually a revival of Christianity. I don't know about other one God religions although I would expect the the same thing there

    The other day I read that "Scientists of evolution base it on theimmutability of species. The idea that each individualspecieson the planet was specially created by God (and could never fundamentally change") I bracketed the part I disagree with; as God never said that; and conditions and foods and friendliness changed greatly since that. The ecology is not the same at all. Man and animals had to eat meat after that and some animals, as we can see today became very vicious and successful at killing for food and today, there is even a constant battle for survival in nature; everything is all quite different than the peaceful compatible Garden of Eden.

    All Adam and Eve had was leaves for a small piece of cloth that God made so that they could cover them selves; and with that he had to leave the garden and he never even knew how to build a fire. I don't even know if he knew what fire was.

    I don't know where evolutionists got that our how they figured it out but they were wrong to base something on that and also to teach it; as when it comes to the Bible; I have read Genesis chapters 1, 2 and 3 often; but after that; generations of people get complicated to me but I know about the common things like Noah's flood and as someone pointed out; that was the first time it rained and that in itself would have changed a lot of things.

    So, in conclusion, animals and even man would have changed but basically man is still as he was created except he ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and he has being developing his thinking and his mind ever since. I wonder was it Adam who discovered fire and use it. I don't think so.

    Conditions had to start to go right down hill from a perfect earth to the caveman stage and thru science; we know that cave men invented fire and started to cook meat; and advanced too as we are today. God said to Adam how the land would give weeds etc but he did not say that that would happen immediately; and so it would happen slowly as a perfect
  • Peter
    I am fascinated by Genesis 1 and 2 and I have tried to interpret various verses always saying that we should look at them in context meaning along with the other verses in the chapter; however; now i think that along with that; it should be in context with other related verses in the Bible; and I always said that maybe the Bible and God does not tell us everything; but now I think that maybe it does; if I indeed could do that; and some people are good at it; I see their references and comments; and I always appreciate them; and I usually or generally check them; and indeed do like reading them; but I am generally not good at doing that and sometimes get a bit hazy or it sometimes confuses me; however; starting at 1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. I wonder what i would find if i were to read all the other verses in the Bible connected with what He put in the Heaven at that time; and some of those things of course are mentioned in Genesis 1 and 2 but I wonder what else because i know that there were angels in Heaven but I always assumed that when we died; that was what we became plus I have heard about the archangel etc. and now that too probably should be considered, I think, in interpreting these first 5 verses, for example, and i think that I would also need more information I think that is available in the Bible for interpretations on Adam and Eve and who sinned ...etc.
  • Chris
    Peter, that would be an interesting exercise to pursue & I'm sure you will gather a whole lot of good information, though it might take you a long while. The only thing of course, is that you would need to exercise wisdom in what you're reading; i.e. sometimes words, or verses, may have other meanings that may cloud your focus on a particular word. Or the word you choose, might be expressed by another word. So, you could start off by typing a word, e.g. Heaven, in the 'Search the Bible' box at the top left of the main page & see where the word appears all over the OT & NT & read around that verse. But, bear in mind, that heaven is also referred to as 'sky' or heavenlies, as the worlds in the universe. So, you need to be aware of that as well & include that in your search.

    Or, 'angels': they can be the inhabitants/messengers of Heaven or those come in human form (e.g. to Abraham, to Lot's house, who wrestled with Jacob, whom we might entertain unawares, etc.), so there are inferences here too. Often, even using the internet to do a search can bring up useful results. But nothing better than to systematically read the Bible from cover to cover & make notes to accomplish your goals.
  • Peter
    Chris; Thank you for your comments and for sure, it would be interesting and I would get a lot of good info but unfortunately; it would be to difficult to do considering my age and health; but nevertheless; I enjoy this christian site and the comments and I do like giving my comments on what I am familiar with; namely Genesis chapters 1, 2 and 3; the ten commandments; and the usually things that most people are familiar with as we learned it in childhood, and I also love listening to Hymns especially with the history; some very interesting stories; Fanny Crosbie for example. She was fantastic. All is well with my soul; another fantastic storya treasure of hymns and stories.

    In regard to words, verses; searching on site and on the internet; and interpretations of these things; these things are no doubt important and the words we pick are extremely important as if we do not pick the most appropriate words; then we do not get the most appropriate answers; and very few people get the same answers if they do not put the time in on it; and in fact study the whole Bible; and even then; there are questions for example on what should we eat as when we were created; we were suppose to eat plant based foods, etc.: and of course; I see comments on these things and often look at any references; and lately I used the search feature to check things that I am interested in; and I was surprised to find one thing that changed my view of one of the things that I had doubt on and never meant to comment on but forgot and did. So that made me realize that I should be checking for myself instead of waiting until I see some one else's comments to straighten me out. It made me feel lazy. ; the one thing that I don't want to be and can't afford to be.

    Once again, Thank you for your comments and help in understanding the Bible
  • Chris
    Thanks for those great comments, Peter. Indeed, as we get older, there's no better way to keep both mind & spirit alert & active, than by studying & searching the Scriptures: both for knowledge & that special ministry from the Holy Spirit. There are many things that we will never fully comprehend from the Word, & those who are particularly skilled/gifted to examine Scriptures, do offer extra insight into our study or questions arising from it.

    I'll look forward to seeing further comments from you here, as I do with all others, & may the Lord help you in your endeavours to know Him better.
  • Peter
    Thank you also Chris for your comments as they are so important especially to a person who is having trouble seeing but loves to hear and see scripture and would like to know where the appropriate verses can be found. I am that person

    Tgank you for your help.
  • Reading the bible helps me grow in my faith. I could not have been the person who I am today without the holy bible.
  • Primrose for verse 1
    This is awesome having people commenting on the verses it will help me get motivated to read more and grow in my faith.

    to: Chris- inReplyonGenesis 1:25

    Thank you, for your comment; I really appreciate it as I did not even know where it was in the Bible and it is so interesting because it says He will be in their midst; and I really believe that. He is with us in spirit as you have explained it; and also we can rejoice as our prayers and praise are always heard; but it can be difficult for some people who can not find other christians to pray with; and I know that there are some and maybe many who have problems and I also believe that at least some of them; takes it to the Lord in prayer; but they still need other christians to pray with; and I don't know if they have that

    Just as God gives his word to man, man must give it to woman, and they both must give it to their children.

    For Donna re Mark 1:15

    Colossians 1:13 says

    The Father "who hath delivered us from the power of darkness , and hath translated ( us )into the kingdom of his dear Son"

    Note the past tense in " hath "

    This says to me that all believers are NOW in Jesus' kingdom

    Jesus says elsewhere

    " The kingdom of heaven is at hand"

    The kingdom is within you Luke 17:21

    So yes the kingdom is at hand within you, the kingdom of light that the evil ones hate, and will avoid, because light drives out darkness

    So we need to proclaim it, so they can hear it


    proclamation allows our ears to hear God's Word, thus increasing our faith?

    We need to hear it as well!
  • Neil
    Q...What does the KJV Greek word "perfect" mean?
  • Michael
    Mature. To grow up.
  • Peter for verse 25
    When I was 30 or so; I thought that the Bible said that, where there are 2 christians gathered together in my name; I will hear their prayer; but I was only one and had no other to pray with; and now , I am also by my self; and I have no-one to pray with; but I know that He hears my prayers because He taught me; and I think that the Bible confirms that He do hear the prayers of one; but He is concerned when a christian can not find another christian to pray with. There may be many christians who have no one to pray with; but please pray if you want to, directly to your Heavenly Father as I can assure you that He hears all prayers directed to Him.
  • Chris for verse 25
    Peter, he most definitely hears your prayers, even if you (& so many others) pray on their own. The only requirement is to come in faith, believing you will receive, as you ask in God's Will. Where Jesus says that where two or three are gathered in My Name, He adds, that He will be in their midst (Matthew 18:20) certainly applied to his disciples as Jesus in His Power could meet with them in Spirit. However, we use this verse now for believers meeting together, & though in a sense correct, we know from Scripture, that Jesus has left this Earth & as God in the flesh, is seated at the Father's Right Hand, always interceding on our behalf. So Jesus physically can't be with us when we meet, but His Spirit, Whom He has sent to us, is with us & in us (John 14:17). In all this, we can truly rejoice that we are never alone & our prayers & praise are always heard.

    Genesis means "beginning". This book describes the creation of the universe, the origin of mankind, the sin and suffering of the world, and God's way of dealing with mankind. Genesis can be divided into two main parts.

    1. chapters 1-11: Creation of the world and the first story of mankind.

    2. chapters 12-50: The history of the ancestors of Israel.

    It begins with the affirmation that God created the universe, and ends with a promise that God will continue to show his concern for his people.

    To record the history of the faith of a nation and to keep this faith alive.
  • Peter for verse 15
    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

    I find that amazing that the heaven and the earth was created from the beginning even before light; And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

    4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

    5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

    The Heaven and earth were created on the first day along with light. I mean it is amazing that would be created on the first day; but when I think about it; if I was God; that is what I would have done as that to me seems the natural order of things when there is a God. At what other point could you have created Heaven. Surely it would not be an after thought; and yet thinking like a man; I have read that so many times and just considered it natural without thinking about it; but lately I did and i thought so wonderful and even a proof of his existence if indeed someone was looking for such proof. I just love reading it as it sounds wonderful. Genesis 1 and 2; I think is my favourites; as I am not much of a reader and all those generations confuses me; although I do like other parts of Genesis, the flood; cities that were destroyed, confusing the language etc.
