    a question that concerns me and would like it to be cleared I hear a lot that the Sabbath day was always Saturday until a pope or popes stated they where above Christ and moved the Sabbath to sunday if this was the case why do we go along with this and do wrong in the face of our lord this is a great concern for me and if one will please answer this for me thank you praise god AMEN
  • Kim Jackson
    no, he did not change it
  • Robin Byers
    What day is the Sabbath? Did God change the Sabbath?
  • Mick
    God rested on the 7th day Genesis 2:3
    Jesus ministered and healed people on Sabbath and had Pharisees on his back for it. There is no set law for what day to attend church. Just don't forsake (stop) gathering together which could mean church or small home groups; some elderly watch church on tv faithfully. Read first 2 chapter of Acts which shows the first meetings of Jesus's believers. It's cool.
  • Mary Byler
    What does the bible mean when it says a wemon long hair is given to her for a covering
  • Mickey
    To Mary Byler: your question in regards to long hair. I found some scriptures. We're not under the Law regarding this. All things are lawful for us but not always expedient.
    1 Corinthians 11:15, 1 Timothy 2:9 and 1 Peter 3:3
  • Heath for verse 14
    Lust....read Genesis 6:1 and 2.. Keep in mind we were created a little lower than the angels. Guilt can do more harm than the original sin Lust Paul... Solomon... NOBODY CAN TAKE EVERYTHOUGHT CAPTIVE ALL THE TIME.
  • Mickey for verse 14
    To Heath>A Christians forever home is in Heaven. If you are going to spend ETERNITY with Jesus, don't you want to get to know Him? What is he like? What He likes? He's the son of God, but he's human too. He had temptations but NEVER sinned. He understands the pits we frequently fall into. Just talk to Him. The Bible is where you will find out these things. Believe me, satan doesn't want you to read it. In the last days of earth, people will be starving for the Word of God (one of Jesus's names).
    Everybody goes thru this. We renew our minds in the Bible. Start with John & flip back to Matthew, Mark, Luke. I went through this too :) Turn off all media & music. Ask the Holy Spirit to help U
  • Why does God not care Part 9 original
    For EVERY other word is we shall be as "one." "One county !" "One school !" "One world (for SATAN to rule)!" Now I speak to WHO? Will my brethren EVEN see this? For so am I TOO USED...to things being UNTRUE, but just a mirage or semblance. I type, but WHO will see? My brethren or those that aggrieve? I type, for there's no one for me, to let out mine heart for to speak. Let it be KNOWN, that GOD HAS done to me, REAL miracles, inexplicable by ANY, debunker of God's hand or way.
  • Why does God not care Part 8 original
    For the 1st Social Justice Warrior was our Lord J.C., and even as I type God's name, it brings me pain, as I think of NOW, the very mocker of Christ, in "song" DOTH steal His name, and His Father's too! But not only one, now the COMPANIES do! For every other word, do they say: I AM. Using the VERY name, in VAIN, as their own. See, Satan "repurposes" TOO! He recycled that lie "and ye shall be as gods" from before the earth divided, for the sin of those united. OH we shall build us an tower (of Babel), did they TRY! And God, as my Holy Scripture witness, today, they STILL are nigh.

    It don't matter what you think, it matters what God's word says. It matters what you think when you're inline with God's word. You're out of line In what I've read. Do you know Jesus by works or by faith? He who believes in him is not condemned. How do you know Jesus? Who sent Jesus? The Father. Who sent Peter to Cornelius? God. Cornelius was Gentile. Read the book of Acts and all the epistles. Read John 3:16. If you're a believer all things have passed away. You're a new creature. There is no Jew or Gentile according to the flesh. But you're a Jew inwardly if you believe in Jesus.
  • James guy
    First we have to stop and think.....did God ,our father ,put these creatures on earth to eat???I don't think so...these animals breathe like we breathe and by us slaughtering them we are not showing love we are supposed to eat fruits veggies and drink water...man made is the devil and I'm trying to stop my brother from bringing sin to the pure which is babies..Babies are the most important creatures we're "BLESSED" with and now our peoplebringing evil to there eyes we must pay close attention to all babies because he's coming through them I believe 'well atleast that's what I believe ..I still sin,I have to be honest with him,myself,and you guys..please we have a choice to reconnect with him
  • Mickey
    James Guy: please read 1 Timothy chapter 4, particularly verse 3. "FORBIDDING to marry and COMMANDING to abstain from MEATS, which God created to be received with thanksgiving.of them which believe and know the truth
    Verse 1: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in LATTER TIMES some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and Doctrines of Devils."

    You actually pass on barbecue for a glass of protein powder really?! Genesis chapter 1 is God creating so man/woman can enjoy it. He called everything HE created, GOOD. He didn't say oh whoops I made a mistake. Verse 31, HE looked over everything HE made and said it was very GOOD.
    You've been seduced. Repent!
  • Curtis Stewart
    The FIRST thing to note in Verse 1, is that this epistlebwas NOT addressed to everyone in the world, but to the 12 scattered tribes of Israel, scattered all over the world, through SLAVERY(CAPTIVITY). Now THIS SHOULD give you an idea of WHO these ppl are, because the Real Jews/Israelites were taken out of the land, sent off into CAPTIVITY for their sins, as Christ Himself said in Luke 21:24..proving those living in Israel today, CANT be the real Jews..but rather jew-ish!!
    This WHY James said "My Brethren" which literally mean "My BROTHERS" because James is also an Israelite!
    If u bypass this first 2 verses without acknowledging this, then u would think this epistle was for everyone. Its not!
  • S
    16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. God moved me to read this after asking him if all the Bible was true.
  • Curtis Stewart
    Yes, What you have said is all true, because its the word of The Most High. The problem though, is when we read a Book, ANY Book, and is not aware of the subject matter or character in the book, else HOW can we understand the story? In the entire Bible, the subject matter is ISRAEL, and not EVERYONE in the world. Therefore, no matter where you read, youll begin to notice, it was always about the descendants of Jacob(whose name was changed to "Israel"). The new and Old Covenants was with Abraham and his descendants, not with everyone in the world!!
  • Bob Hilt
    Jeremiah 3:8
    "And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also."
    God DIVORCED Israel with the promise of remarriage
    Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
    Matthew 15:24 But he (Jesus) answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
  • Bob Hilt
    Galations 3:29 shows those in Christ ARE the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob Israel.
    Matthew 15:24 - But he Jesus answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
  • Curtis Stewart
    Think for a second! Christ could only be made a curse for the people whobwere UNDER the curse. Those are the Israelites only. Because the laws was given only to them..so the curse of the law, by their disobedience, could only come upon them!!rnThis is WHY when it says Christ was made a curse for "US"..that US is Israel...and that the blessings of Abraham may come upon the "Gentiles"..these "gentiles" were the northern Kingdom of Israel, they were "called " gentiles because they were living "LIKE" the Gentiles around them. Now, think about the parable of the prodigal son. Notice it said the younger son went off living riotuously? Yes, that signifies the 9 rebellious tribes of ISRAEL!!
  • Mickey
    There are 10s of thousands of Messianic born again Jews. In lsrael and in this USA.rnSuch hatred have you.
  • Bob Hilt
    Every messianic jew I have conversed with claims the new testament was originally in Hebrew then mistranslated into Greek by antisemitic Greeks. There are thousands of New testament Greek manuscripts and ZERO Hebrew
    So is the new testament antisemitic? they claim it is. Read chapters of John 6 and John 8 see who Jesus was speaking to, not the Romans. I have a bachelors in theology and a masters degree in ministry. I have studied this issue in depth.
    Q: Did Jesus take the Kingdom of God from the Jews?

    A: Matthew 21:43 - Therefore say I (Jesus speaks to Jews) unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. GREEKS
  • Curtis Stewart
    Galatians 3:29 "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."rnThe promises were made ONLY to Abrahams SEED, therefore those "Greeks" had to be Israelites!! No other way around it.rnProof: Romans 9:3 " For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my BRETHREN, my KINSMEN according to the FLESH:rnrn4 Who are ISRAELITES; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the PROMISES;"rnTHE PROMISES WAS MADE TO THE DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM ONLY..AND EVERYTHING ELSE PERTAINS TO REAL ISRAELITES..NOT THOSE IN ISRAEL TODAY. Christ said His ppl would go into slavery. Luke 21:24
  • Curtis Stewart
    Did you guys even realize that those GREEKS mentioned in scriptures, were indeed ISRAELITES?
    The scripture said there is NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JEW NOR GREEK!! So WHY would it make a comparison between ONLY those TWO nation of people..and didnt even mention the other nations of the world?
    Do you even understand WHY there were Israelites LIVING in Greece? Here is why, Joel 3:6 "The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye SOLD UNTO THE GRECIANS, that ye might remove them far from their border."
    CLEARLY, THIS is how these Israelites ended up in Greece.
    Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's SEED, and heirs according to the PROMISE."
    Promis made to israel
  • Bob Hilt
    Yeshua is Lucifer per the Complete (Messianic) Jewish Bible by author David Stern
    The MORNING STAR (Lucifer in the KJV) who FELL from heaven is in Isaiah 14 who goes to the pit.
    Yeshua is the MORNING STAR of Revelation 22. This is what Messianic Jews teach and believe
    according to the Complete Jewish Bible by David Stern a messianic Jew.
    messianic Jews why do they HATE the name JESUS?
    Why do they refuse to be called Christians?
    Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
    Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
    whereby we must be saved
  • Curtis Stewart
    The messianic Jews knows that the real "Jesus" whose Hebrew name is Yahawashi, is a black man. Else, HOW could He be hid IN EGYPT, form King Herod? Christ was dark skinned, (Revelation 1,) Moses and Paul were BOTH mistaken for Egyptians..and both of them were not(Acts 21:28-41)..they were calling Jews "Niger" in the Bible. (Acts 13:1).
    The conclusion to the matter is this, EVERY nation of people, yes, including the Amalekites living in Israel today, have had The Most High's Chosen ppl, as slaves ..in Captivity all over the world..Egypt, Persia, Rome, Babylon, USA, the Caribbean, etc. So, What a man sow, that shall he ALSO reap. Revelation 13:10 and Isaiah 14 sums up what goin to happen soon
  • Bob Hilt
    Revelation 1:14 - His Jesus HEAD head and his hairs were WHITE white like wool, as WHITE white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass,

    Brass is made of copper which is REDDISH GOLDEN, not black as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
    The world hates white Christians esp.
    Bible book Song of Solomon 5:10 - My beloved is WHITE white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.

    Bible book Lamentations 4:7 - Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were WHITER whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire:
  • Adam
    Hi Curtis,rnrnThe skin color of Jesus and Jews seems really important to you, why is that? Does it change anything whether they were light, dark, medium? People walked a lot in the sun then and were likely quite dark from the sun, but that's different than race. If you look at the Israelites today they are olive skin (medium) middle-Eastern, likely the same as in Jesus's time. You said Jesus is black Revelation 1, but I read it and I don't see any verse talking about skin color. So, what verse exactly do you say proves your claim? Secondly, have you prayed to God about this to know the truth?
  • Curtis Stewart
    Yes, Christ did NOT come for everyone. He Himself told us WHO He came for, "The lost sheep of the House of Israel"(9 tribes). SO, WHERE did we get this silly idea that He came for everyone??rn He didnt say the House of Judah, (3 Tribes(these ONLY are called the Jews)because He came to bring the 9 rebellious tribes BACK with the 3, to make them ONE kingdom again.(See Ezekiel 37).rnGalatians3: 13"Christ hath redeemed US from the curse of the law, being made a curse for US: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:rn14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."
  • Adam
    Jesus already said exactly who he came for. Luke 19:10, Mark 2:17. He came for the lost and sinners. Who is lost and a sinner? Romans 3:23 - Everyone. So, Jesus came for everyone- that's exactly what the Bible says. Jesus gave a firm warning to those who try to deceive others by twisting or denying what Jesus said: Mark 8:38, 1 John 2:22-23.
  • Bob Hilt
    Matthew 15:24 But he (Jesus) answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    Amos 3:2 You (Israel) only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
    Revelation 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
    Just curious where the 13th gentile gate is to new Jerusalem?
