Discussion for Luke 1

  • Ray321
    Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth ? I tell you , Nay; but rather division. Luke12:51. Jesus will separate the bad from the good. Jesus wants no part of evil . I really understand that verse.

    "It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto you in order, most excellent Theophilus, that you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you hast been instructed." I found something very interesting in Josephus; where he says that after Joseph Caiaphas, Jonathan became High Priest; and after Jonathan, his brother Theophilus.

    Jedonai, You dare to say that we aren't able to keep God's commands? What God commands us to do; to love Him with all our being, and our neighbor as our selves; love out of a pure heart and a good conscience, and faith without hypocrisy; to not commit murder, adultery, lying, stealing, or coveting anything that is our neighbor's, and honoring our parents; Jesus said, "This do, and you shall live."

    steve:what is the WILL of GOD?
    This is the will of God. Luke 10:27. And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Just ponder over it continually in your heart and the Holy Spirit will guide you.
