  • Ken Hatley for verse 28
    Thank you, I do have a couple of questions regarding end time prophecies.

    1. What is the Book, Chapter and verse that states " They will be buying and selling" referring to the end times.

    2. Where are the scriptures about perversion and homosexuality Lust. There is something in the Bible I have read that said something about make up or painting there faces as the heathen do. I can't remember the verbage exactly but it that is what it referred to.

    Thank You and God Bless You for your wonderful service and information.

  • Mishael On Romans 1 for verse 28
    Question 1: Revelation 13 (open this link)

    Question 2: Romans 1

    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    Also there is a scripture about men not dressing in women's clothing, and vice versa.

    God is not in this lifestyle. You can pray for God to work within their wills to turn and walk away from it. Repent. Receive Jesus's salvation. John 3 be born again. Receive the indwelling HOLY SPIRIT. They'll have to lose their old friends. Follow Jesus. No backsliding ever.

  • Chris for verse 28
    Ken, in answer to your questions:

    1. Luke 17:26-30 tells us in the last days before Jesus returns to Earth, things will go on as normal: just as they did in Lot's time. But all of a sudden God's Judgement will be poured out, as did happen to Sodom & Gomorrah, so the instruction to the Jews not to return back for their worldly goods (i.e. to preserve their lives).

    2. There are many references to homosexuality in both the Old & New Testaments. Some of these are: Leviticus 20:13 (& see other verses in this chapter about the detestable acts that God abhors; also Lev chap 18); Romans 1:24-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:8-10.

    In reference to wearing of make-up: even though passages such as 1 Timothy 2:9,10 & 1 Pet 3:3,4 speak about the wearing of respectable, godly apparel & not about putting on of make-up, there are references to it that associate it with harlotry when beauty had to be enhanced to allure the men: 2 Kings 9:30, Jeremiah 4:30. Leviticus 19:28 speaks about printing marks & cutting of flesh which what Israel must not do (as the heathen did).

    The Kingdom of God is gonna come from within us simply b/c Jesus is gona go forth and sow his precious seed in our hearts,The son of man is gonna come via a seed which is the WORD THAT NEW COVENANT ( THE BOOK ) in the right hand of the father. The contents of that book are LIVING WORDS which are the Seeds of God,My words are spirit and life like God is spirit n life. If ya can hear it the book was written with his own blood ,no man cd look on it,but the babes and sucklings that are gonna result from the heavenly seeds,th book,the Children of PROMISE that Are gonna be born in US,Thats y th new birth is so important.Unless the lord of sabboah had left us a seed etc.Being bornagain of an incorruptible seed, the Words of that book ( his breath etc ) Zech refers to him as our 1st born ,our only son.Smite the Shephard n th sheep will be scattered then i will turn my Hand to the LIL ONES ( our 1st born our only son ) which is th H.G. the Son of MAN MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD VIA TH WORDS O BOOK.

    Jesus cleansed 10 with leprosy and only gave thanks. The question and answer ask how many cleansed I answered 10 which was wrong I guess. How did the correct answer be 11? Maybe I misinterpreted the verse. Help me to understand
  • LTT
    Charlene, I counted 10 like you did.
  • Steve
    Hi Charlene - In Luke 17 you are reading about the 10 lepers healed by Jesus. But, the question is "how many are cleansed in the Bible." There is one more in Mark Chapter 1, v 40-45. So the total is 11. God's Blessings to you.
  • BSP
    Verse 6~True faith can result in miracles. Having strong faith in Jesus Christ and Jehovah God can help us to overcome any obstacle.
  • BSP
    Verses 20,21~Jesus indicated that it would take discernment to recognize the signs of the last days and perceive where we are in the stream of time.
  • A disciple
    "And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger." The Lord knows when the crowds are thronging and pressing at Him, and when one touches Him in faith that virtue goes out from Him. Jesus also is aware of how many take His healing and salvation and go their way NOT returning to give God glory.
  • A disciple
    "Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I expect not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do." When we have been explicitly told what we are to believe and do, and how to think of ourselves, how then is obedience something special or extra?
  • A disciple
    "Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!" Keeping with the context and continuance of the previous chapters, it was the covetous and hostile disobedient rich who derided the Lord and let Lazarus perish with poverty and hunger right at their own front gate. This kind treat Christians the same way, without any concern.
  • Eutychus
    "And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith." A thing for which we all seek. Unfortunately, the people we ask to help the Lord increase our faith, are usually folks who are PAID to teach us how to have faith...they themselves not having faith enough to live as the Bible says, "Take no thought for the morrow, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, or wherewith shall ye be clothed."
  • Teri
    i agree and believe the time for spoon feeding is over. If your teacher doesn't study how can he deliver solid food...we all must study to show ourselves approved.
  • Htrixmon
    If you look at the word men it is in italics. This means the word men was supplied by the translator or added. Read the verse without the word men because that is how it is in the original text. I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed the one will be taken and the other left.
  • Brianna vs. 1-4
    These scriptures reminds us that problems with our fellow man are sure to come. However, it all reminds us of how to deal with "stumbling". It's not wrong to rebuke our brother for the wrong they made have made against us, but if they ask for forgiveness, then we are to sincerely forgive them from the heart. A hard but valuable lesson.
  • Spirit Child of God
    The Bible is a three-fold message, within the message. The material for the body, the psychological for righteous thinking of the mind, and the spiritual for our spirit salvation in God, which is of supreme importance! If our bodies are the temple of God and his kingdom is within us it doesn t take rocket science to figure out that our spirit is God and his kingdom in us! For God is the kingdom
  • Servant of God
    Who among you is sharp enough to discern what this doctrine is about. It surely is not about political power, abortion reversal, 2nd amendment, presumption of salvation, self-righteousness, ad nauseum. It is about work! And not for personal gain, but secretly, to warrant grace from the Father. He alone can reward or punish, bless or correct. That is what this chapter is about. Give glory!
  • A disciple
    (continued) This is not to further argue with those who want to believe fantasies rather than receive instruction from the Spirit of Truth; but that everyone knows, it was APOSTASY OF BELIEVERS that caused the destruction of all piety and fear of God in the world, by their casting off the bonds of the Spirit and moral restraint. The flood of Noah however did not wash this evil out of men's hearts.
  • A disciple
    "But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation: and as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man." In Genesis 6 is first shown the root cause of the complete and utter ruin of the world, and of its being filled with violence and every thought of men's hearts every day only evil continually: REJECTION OF GOD'S SPIRIT BY THOSE WHO KNEW!
  • Times and laws
    two men in the bed, those who sleep in their dusty beds, there are those who are resurrected and those who are not at the days of the son of man, two women : two churches Yahs true church and the Babylon church, two in field: laborers for Yah, laborers for satan, Taken in Everlasting death. As in Noahs day
  • William Iannucci
    Why has our country by the known Churches turned away ,is there not any to make a difference? I am unknown but am well known by my Master for he is in me though I be not Christ and shall continue to do exploits in honor of the Lord God Almighty who rules and reigns forever. SELAH AMEN PS Even thoughs who call on his name shall be delivered from darkness unto light through Christ who alone is JESUS
  • Jo Ann Wulf
    And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 2 Thess 2:8 KJB
  • Bruce
    disciple: You have that backwards. Noah and his Family were taken away from the destruction coming. The same with Lots Family. The same is going to happen in the end. He will take The Ones Washed in His Blood away from The Wrath coming on The Whole World and so shall We ever be with The Lord. Has He Tugged on Your Heart? Ask Forgiveness. You will be Washed,Baptized,Changed. Salvation is WOW!!!
  • A disciple
    Peter; from the examples used by the Lord here; who were the ones remaining? not the wicked, but the saved! Only Noah, and they that were with him in the ark were left after the cataclysm. Of all those who lived in the cities of the plain, on the south shore of what is now the Dead Sea; only Lot and his family escaped the overthrow of fire and burning sulfur. Read Matthew 13; the evil are removed.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    May we NOT be among those who will be left behind when the Lord shall come. To ensure that this happens, we must be ready for His Kingdom through our being washed in the Blood of the Lamb. This chapter also underscores the importance of appreciating God's goodness towards us. One out of the ten lepers returned to thank Jesus.
  • Zeingoff
    Luke 20-21 the kingdom comes not with observation. No one will see for we are made in the image of God. That is our bodies within are spirit as the Father is spirit. These sayings of Jesus are always symbolic. Substitute mustard seed/faith for instance. He wants us to work at this and not be blind leading blind. You can't site verse to prove a point, especially from Paul, who taught different
  • Word
    In vs 23 Christ tells us don't go! The one in the field and those that go are going the wrong way. They are taken because of their own ignorance. I think of it as when the false messiah gets here and he acts likes Jesus, looks like Jesus, performs miracles like nothing they have ever seen and he claims to be God return and every body in the world believe it God returned it just has to be. Don't go
  • Stephende
    The Master wasn't speaking, I don't think about some Apocalypse at his returning. No one will witness Him floating down from heaven to beat up the bad guys. What's important to me is that the Kingdom is within, or impressive to the truly faithful, who has humbled himself completely as the parable states. It is one's duty to seek the Kingdom! Your reward is given in secret and no man will rob.
