    Is God a Spirit or human
  • Bob Hilt for verse 26
    John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

    1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
  • Spirit. John 4:24. God bless you.

    does anything in the bible say anything about seeing 111,222,333,444,555,777,888,999 or

    1111,211,311,411,511,611,711,exct... ive been seing them since i started to read the bible and then i look in the sky and see circle and cross in the middle shape all the time. i dont know what is happening to me. i need help i been searching for 3 years now and cant find anyone to give me an answer. please help me if you can?
  • Chris for verse 26
    Debra, no the Bible doesn't say anything about those numbers you've listed, except for the number you missed: 666. This is found in Revelation 13:18 referring to the number of Man, which relates to the mark of the coming Anti-Christ.

    However, thinking further on your plight, I also have something similar happening to me. However, mine is a medical matter with the eyes which I've had since I was a kid: whenever I look at the sky or the ceiling in a room, I see black spots of different shapes & sizes & they all continuously move around. I asked my optometrist about this, & she called them 'floaters', & some people have them. Maybe you need to make an appointment with one to check your eyes for this, as well as your peripheral vision, glaucoma, macula degeneration, etc. & rule out this phenomenon. But I don't see any numbers - that sounds a little weird.

    Chris, what a "coincidence" that, while I was going through a few threads with some concern about the health of my left eye, I came upon your

    This is the very first time, I think, that I have read through discussions here although I have visited many, many times for some time now.

    I could sense that you are a very gentle soul and that was, mainly, what prompted me to post this comment.

    By the way, I have come to this part of the forum, some minutes after I had started looking for commentaries on "the islands of the sea" (Isaiah 11:11).

    God bless you. Have a blessed day!
  • Chris for verse 26
    Thanks for your input here; indeed, this is a great place to visit to maybe learn more of God's Word or even to share your thoughts & revelations from the Spirit. Though our discussions can get quite 'spirited' at times, hopefully keeping them in the bounds of holiness & decency. I too have used KJBOnline often, as my 'Go To' when working on a message at my desk, but became interested further when checking out the Discussions Tab: a great way to share, learn & even unknowingly, helping someone struggling in their faith - it can become quite an effective ministry if soaked in prayer & the Spirit's guidance. The Lord bless you too & trust that your eye issue will be sorted out.
  • Christian for verse 26
    More and more Christians are waking up to the true biblical flat earth FACT, backed

    up and supported by 200+ scriptures and common sense. We do NOT live on that

    fake, spinning ball, satanic deception, anti scriptural, Luciferian, Pagan, globe hoax,

    most were brainwashed and indoctrinated into believing. Praise the Lord God almighty!
  • Bob Hilt for verse 26
    Flat earth? Isaiah 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the CIRCLE circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers;........ a pancake?

    Is the moon also flat? Believe in Jesus and the flat earth and thou shalt be saved?

    Is this something to really argue over?
  • Christian for verse 26
    All the globetards always go to that scripture. Wrong! A circle is NOT a sphere or ball.

    Over 200+ scriptures, tell of the foundations of the earth and they CANNOT be moved,

    and the 4 corners of the earth, ect. I have been a born again Christian for 40+ years.

    I have been studying the TRUE biblical flat earth FACT for at least the past 5. Step

    outside the Luciferian Lies you been brainwashed and indoctrinated and brainwashed

    into believing. Repent and do some REAL research.

    Thank you for reply Luke 34 and 35. Growing up in church with Gods love and protection, I did sing This Little Light Of Mine. I pray Jesus will continue to be our light for all eternity. God Bless.

    In LUKE Ch. 14 verse 34 and 35 what does the salt mean, when it has lost it's flavor?
  • Jesse
    Jo, jo

    The word good in V. 34 means useful. In those days, salt was a preservative. They put salt on things to keep it from putrefying. But if salt does not contain the proper ingredients, what is it good for? Jesus talks about salt and light in Matthew 5:13-16. He says, "You are the salt of the earth." At this point and time in experiencing the fullness of God, He says, YOU ARE the salt of the earth. And then He says, "YOU ARE the light of the world." Salt was used for two things. It was used as a preservative. They used it to preserve food, especially meat and vegetables. They also used it for purification. In 2 Kings 2:19-23, salt was used to purify bad water.

    But to know why He used the term salt, we need to understand that God made a covenant of salt with Israel (Numbers 18:19), which God said would be upon David and his descendants. Paul in Romans Chapter 11 said all of the Jews of the Kingdom. In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus says you are salt and you are light. He went on to say that you can't take a light and put it under a bushel.

    What He is saying is you can't snuff out the light of the Lord. The light amongst the Jews was the Messiah. You are salt. Christ in you is the light, and Christ in you is the purification and the preservative for the people around you and especially in your life.

    The command is let your light so shine. Did you ever sing that song "This little light of mine, not going to let anybody blow it out? It can't be blown out. Nobody can blow it out. The command itself, (let your light so shine) kind of sounds like an invitation. But literally, it is "Shine your light," which is a command of God. Shine your light! I don't have to worry about going out to my car to find the light because the Lord said for me to shine it. Israel was said to be the light of the world. Isaiah 42:6, Isaiah 49:6, and Isaiah 60:3 says that the Jews were to be the salt and the light of the world.

    If you don't see imperfection in yourself and those around you, then you will not be able to learn from him.
  • Zakhar
    Verse 28 is obviously Jesus mocking the tower of Babylon pointing to it whose king was transformed into a beast eating the flowers and pastures of the earth but modern theives contemplate this to be a monetary issue taking peoples money from them.
  • Obbie Beal
    34, Jesus knew, because of sin we became unfit and useless for GOD s purpose. We lost the purpose we were created for, see Ecclesiastes 12:13. But GOD through Jesus, see John 3:16-21, again makes available GOD s purpose available to you and I, plus, through Jesus SALVATION is available to us., thereby we can be at the Marriage-Supper-Of-the-Lamb, Revelation 19:9.
  • Obbie Beal
    Luke 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Note: Jesus delivered John 3:16-21 to them us, and Jesus knows HE must return to the Father, so HE entrust to those who will, too continue delivering John 3:16-21 as one of HIS disciples. Forsaking all by living according to Jehovah GOD word.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 28-32, Jesus knew the importance of strategic-planning as it relates to Salvation, so Jesus taught us verse 28-32 as examples of strategic planning thereby we can understand there is always a cost to be considered as we live our life day-by-day, especially the cost required living as a Disciple-Of-Christ.
    The wicked say, Jesus knows he is on His way to the cross, and, Jesus is on His way to the cross thereby providing Salvation to the world, Man shews his evil intent but confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? It is written, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
  • Obbie Beal
    26-27 is given by Jesus to us to be taken into consideration. Note: Jesus is on His way to the cross thereby providing Salvation to the world, never-the-less on this particular day Jesus give to us two of His standards that must be taken into consideration, as it relate to Salvation.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 16-24, He prepared a Great Supper and many were bidden, but they had so much to do. So many others was Sought-Out and allowed to fill the seat of the bidden. See Revelation 19:9. Note: Jesus knows he is on His way to the cross, so His mind is on The Kingdom Of GOD.
  • Obbie Beal
    Amen! to verse 15.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 7-11 Jesus observed the actions of certain of the people, us, then Jesus give HIS formula that applies to all when needed, see verse 11.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 1-6, Jesus once again bring clarity to them and us about the Sabbath, one of the Ten-Commandments.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Sabbath day ended at the cross Jesus already fulfilled the Sabbath day. The Sabbath day was a day to rest, when you are resting you are not sinning. Many Christians so called pollute the sabbath day by leaving their house. Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

    WOW. Just sayin. Sometimes He just slaps you in the face!
  • Francisco Rabon
    I see the foolishness of pride the outreached hand to the needy care of the present life and lack of dedication to the service of God standing in the way of a walk with the Lord, the qualities of a little child is encouraged in these scripture passages.

    God has no color__ how blind America is towards the Word of God_ the Gospels of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour Hallelujah !!!

    Verse 17~The man had put all that effort into the grand evening meal and all those originally invited gave lame excuses. This showed that they didn't have any regard for the man and they were really selfish.
