    Good day, Lynn

    To answer your question, no, God's eye cannot be in a place where His presence is not. But as I have said before, He really does not have eyes or a body. these terms were used in the Bible so we, as humans can understand Him better, since in His pure Spirit, He is incomprehensible. In using such terms he his condescending to our perspective to reach us, since we cannot reach Him in our own creatureliness.
  • God knows Everything - in Reply on Luke 1
    Omniscience is one of God's immutable attributes, which is to say, all knowledge of all things is an inherent part of His character and being. Nothing is outside of God's sphere of knowledge. The word "omniscient" is defined as having infinite awareness, understanding and insight; it is universal and complete knowledge.

    God's omniscience means that He can never learn anything new. Nothing can surprise Him or take Him unaware. He is never blind-sided! You will never hear God say, "I didn't see that coming!" or "Who would have thought?" A firm belief in God's omniscience gives the Christ-follower extraordinary peace, security, and comfort in every area of life.

    Amos 8:12

    And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

    Job 2:2

    And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

    2 Chronicles 16:9

    For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

    God has knowledge of everything occurring at any given time. We ask, well why did He allow this and that to happen?!

    He gifted us free will, to make decisions that glorify Him and not us. Glorify Jesus. Welcome the Holy Spirit to help us become more like Jesus.

    We have technology to tell us daily what is happening all over the earth: weather, wars, economy, disasters, Everything.

    As His children we ought to ask the Lord our questions and then leave it with Him. By reading the Bible, cover to cover, almost all of our questions will be answered. If you ask Him a question, be prepared to sit in silence before Him and, WAIT UPON THE LORD. Open up dialog with Him. Be willing to accept the no's with the yes's.

    Lynn Maybe I'll state this in a different way God Being spirit is everywhere present but invisible also all

    knowing, so when the bible says His eyes are all over thats attributing to god Human characteristics to better

    explain on our level the senses How He who is spirit functions. Perhaps this is better.
  • Rick Mentzer - in Reply on Luke 1
    Lynn Also God is omnipresent Almighty omnipotent all love, Spirit, True, Perfect, Father of Lights,

    author of all life, eternal, and best of all if born again our heavenly Father.
  • Lynn - in Reply on Luke 1
    Hi this still doesn't answer my question, can God eyes be in a place and his presence not? Is my question. Thanks for responding though
  • Rick Mentzer - in Reply on Luke 1
    Lynn God is Spirit John 4:24 we can't physically communicate with God, therefore many times in the scripture all of Gods creation in some aspect is used to describe a characteristic of God I.E. Gods eyes run to and fro in the earth its a figure of speech, God is my fortress and my rock of salvation, my God will bare his arm, God is a fountain of living water.

    Now when were born again we again have a spiritual communication with the Father holy spirit 24/7 confessing

    Romans 10:9+10 and believing and changing our lifestyle to Gods Word.
  • Lynn on Luke 1
    I heard someone say the eyes of the lord is everywhere but his presence is not there. His eyes is there but his presence is not? Is this true. I need clarity when the word say God is omnipresent

    Ricardo,

    The Holy Spirit was active in humanity since the beginning. He rested upon prophets as they were set out on their ministry by God. John was a special case. He received the anointing presence of the Holy spirit from the time he was conceived. He was chosen to be the forerunner to the Messiah, Jesus) as prophesied . God chose to endue John with the Holy Spirit from the womb for him to carry out that which he was created to do-to be the first prophet in Israel in over 500 years to announce the arrival of the prophesied Messiah. Can you imagine what he was like growing up? With Elizabeth and Zachariah as his parents? Though sinful as all of us are, he must have been a good kid overall, having the Holy Spirit guiding, sanctifying, and empowering as the Spirit does for us. But he was an exception in his day, so he must have stood out among is peers. maybe that is why he lived in the desert-didn't fit in much with the world!
  • John the Baptist - in Reply on Luke 1
    Jesus held a great regard for Johns ministry. They were cousins. Mary and Elizabeth were related.

    Luke 7:28

    For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.

    Matthew 11:11

    Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

    John 13:16

    Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
  • T. Le - in Reply on Luke 1
    The Holy Spirit did exist & manifest itself in people prior. Genesis 1:2, Genesis 6:3, Genesis 41:38, Judges 3:10, Judges 6:3, Judges 11:29, 1 Samuel 11:6-7, 1 Samuel 16:13, 2 Kings 2:9,

    1 Samuel 16:14, 1 Samuel 19:20,

    There are more references. Here are some more study references. Hope this helps.

    appears to be different in the manifestation unto many people at the same time with many events occurring.

    Also people being able to transfer the HOLY Spirit to another seems to appear after CHRIST was resurrected from death & the grave. Acts 1, Acts 9:17,31, Acts 10:44, Acts 11:15,16, Acts 13:52, Acts 19:1-11,

    Ephesians 5:9, Galatians 3:14, Romans 8:1,

    Please read the WORD of GOD,
  • Ricardo Thomas on Luke 1
    How was John the Baptist filled with the Holy Ghost in his mother's womb if the Holy Ghost didn't come until after the crucifixion of Jesus?
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Luke 1
    Luke 8:2, Luke 8:1-4, the whole chapter is relevant actually to point out Jesus love for people deliverance, GOD's nature, Luke 8,

    Mary Magdalene is mentioned: Mark 15:40-47, continues Mark 16:1-14, Matthew 27:55-56 (followed Jesus from Galilee), Matthew 27:59-61, Matthew 28:1-10, Luke 23:49-56 continues Luke 24:1-10,22-24, John 19:25,

    Luke 10:38-42, John 20:1-18,

    * John 11:1-8, John 11:1-45

    * John 12:1-3,

    Luke 7:36-50- Luke 8:1-3, same account?

    John 12,

    Hopefully you enjoy this study.

    Carlene What I showed was a different event disregard thanks God Bless!
  • Bro dan - in Reply on Luke 1
    Amen Bro Jesse. And Jesus said it in such a subtle way. It is THE MESSAGE:)
  • Jesse - in Reply on Luke 1
    Carlene,

    You can find this account in Luke 7:36-50 which shows the proof of forgiveness. There is a very important message in that section of scripture. The woman's name is not given.
  • Carlene Gaines on Luke 1
    Jesus was anointed by an unnamed women. Who was this women. Where in the Bible can I get clarity ?
  • GiGi - in Reply on Luke 1
    Essentially, Jesus was born to save mankind from sin and the wrath of God justly allotted to mankind for its sinfulness.

    This salvation include many things. I will state what He saves us from: our sin (forgiveness of sin), death and the grave (victory by resurrection of the body), the wrath of God (Jesus took all of God's wrath for us on the cross), the evil one (Satan defeated by the death and resurrection of Jesus) and hell (eternal death). Now I will state what salvation saves us to: regeneration (made spiritually alive to God by the Holy Spirit), given a new nature born of the Spirit; we become adopted sons of God; we receive eternal life (instead of eternal death); are given power through God's grace to say no to what is sinful and yes to what is right; but most of all, we are come to truly know God through Jesus Christ in an endless relationship with Him.

    God, in His , determined that the Son of God would become the Son of Man (to be human in every way but sin) so, conception is the beginning of a human life, and birth introduces this new life to the world. If Jesus had appeared on earth as an adult without normal human growth, mankind would not believe that He was fully human, most likely.

    Hope this helps.

  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 1
    Hello John. The Bible that you can read on this Site, is the King James Version & it is different from the Catholic Edition of the Bible. Its chief difference is the inclusion of seven apocryphal books interspersed within the Old Testament of the Bible. Otherwise, apart from some slight differences & word usage, they are very similar.
  • John on Luke 1
    is this a catholic bible
  • Adeniyi Oluwalere on Luke 1
    i saw a great answer to my concern to what seems like the closeness of Zacharias mouth

    was a punishment whereas the account of him was that of an eminent piety and

    integrity.

Now I must return a fight the prince of Persia........ Left me alone with the Kings of Persia...... The prince of Greece is coming.......... Only Michael one of the chief princes the Guardian Angel of Israel is there to help me, - At that time shall Michael the Great Prince stand up for the children of Israel....... Our war is not against flesh and blood but against wicked spirits powers and principalities and authorities in high places.

    Earl,

    There's a bit more detail that I didn't include, and figured you would appreciate it. In 1996, after 700 years in its possession, London sent the coronation stone back to Scotland, so effectively neither country sits on David's throne.

    ( Ezekiel 21:27) I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.

    In the move, David's throne was overturned three times, ending up in London. The phrase "and it (throne) shall be no more, until"..... Means until Jesus Christ comes, there will be no more throne, no forth overturn, limbo. The Bible continues to fit our current state of affairs, and conditions for Messiah's return.
  • Simon - in Reply on Luke 1
    Earl,

    This prophesy describes Jeremiah's commission, along with Baruch, to move and replant David's throne, along with the ark of the covenant, prior to Nebuchadnezzar's destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. Look at the last two commands of Jeremiah 1:10: "to build, and to plant". Jeremiah replanted David's throne according to God's declaration that David would 'never lack a man sitting on his throne'. Christ has an active, earthly throne to return to; the queen of England sits on David's throne.

    ( Isaiah 49:1,3) God calls Israel (house) "O isles" his servant in whom God will glorify.

    ( Psalm 89:25)

    ( 1 Kings 8:25)

    ( Jeremiah 33:17)

    Jeremiah also played royal matchmaker in Egypt by taking a "low" couple with him to assume the throne. He took a 'tender branch' (daughter) of the kings to heal the Zarah-Pharez breach. ( Isaiah 37:32,31)

    All the kings of the British isles have been coronated on "Jacob's stone", care of Jeremiah, seated beneath the throne. See the pictures. Jeremiah took it from Jerusalem to Ireland, to Scotland, an onward to its current resting place in London, England. It was overturned 3 times along the way, and when the time comes, will be taken by Christ back to Jerusalem.

    Simon, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Jeremiah 1:4-10

    I hope you understand this is prophecy about Jesus Christ; not Jeremiah. Read all the way to verse 10.
  • Simon - in Reply on Luke 1
    You said: "The term "pre-existent" is an oxymoron" & "Noone has ever pre-existed oneself".

    This is not so according to ( Jeremiah 1:4-5) Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
