    From my observations, and I could be wrong, it may be because of the age of the Thread, or that the Thread itself has become too long. You've probably noticed how the latest comments being attached get narrower in appearance. Once I had to read a comment with one word on each line! So, I think 'locking' Threads is a reasonable thing to do & after all, a person can just start a new Comment since a lot of our comments disappear into antiquity very soon.

    Comments by Alex about Mark 8 v 22 Jesus have to pray for the blindman a 2 nd time And Jesus is God why wd he have to pray for the blindman a 2 nd time.lemme tell ya why. Jesus had to take the blindman by his hand and lead him outta of the city,Thus the blindman is symbolic of the Church.God had to take the church in the wilderness by the hand lead her outta of Egypt. She was blind spritually. The early Church cd not see clearly under the 1st anointing even Paul says we see like thru a glass darkly Early Church doctrine cd not enable the Church to see clearly. Early Church doctrine was the 1st anointing, We see in part etc, Nobody can see clearly under early Church doctrine thats y we have 1000s of churches on every corner its simply b/c we cannot see clearly under the 1st anointing, There has to be a 2 nd anointing, Which is the 2 nd coming when he will pour out his spirit on all flesh and we will all march together and not break rank as Joel said When that book is opened Then the kingdom will come. When that which is perfect is come that which is done in parts will be done away with. Thats y they sang a new song when the book was opened the book is the new Covenant ( that 2 nd Anointing ) we will all see clearly in that day.We will all bring forth fruit unto God we will no more be as trees walking ( fruitless trees ) But now there are not even 2 ppl under 1 roof that can agree on 1 scripture, We need that 2 nd anointing to see clearly, which is the 2 nd coming when he will pour out his spirit on all flesh, Then we will all see clearly no more churches on every corner but Christ is gonna be born in our hearts abide in me and i in you,Thats y he always called himself the son of man, mankind is gona bring forth fruit unto God which is a baby Christ the SON OF MAN the H.G. the Children of PROMISE, OUR NEW BIRTH. She brought forth a manchild that IS GONNA RULE ALL NATIONS, Thats the results of the new covenant, the seed of the SOWER TH WORDS OF GOD THE 2N ANOINTING.

    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Looking through a glass darkly would not present the past, Paul is speaking of the future, since we are talking about the salvation of man ,and the kingdom of God. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. When our Lord died on the cross it was one time only, not 2. The redemption for mankind ,for the world 1 Time! This was the hope of Abraham ,Isaac, Jacob. David, the promise that you say is clouded? This anointing we receive, is his shed blood! 1 time for the sins of the world.

    Alex, a second witness to the woman in Revelation 12, I Timothy 2:14-15 And Adam (symbolic of Christ) was not deceived, but the woman (symbolic of us, as is the woman in Revelation 12) being deceived was in the transgression. (vs) 15 Notwithstanding she (the woman, us) shall be saved (from death) in childbearing (by giving birth to a child (us) fathered by the Holy Ghost, same as was Christ, for our life is Christ), if they (all women, all of us are the woman) continue in faith (in Christ) and charity (in Christ) and holiness (in Christ) with sobriety(in Christ).

    Alex what Bible verse says the Nation of Israel The Jews is the church i am confused I thought they were separate ???
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Mark 8
    The spiritual kingdom is the kingdom Christ established on earth after Christ resurrection. The church are those that teach and believe that he will fulfil his word when He returns for his church. His "bride. All through the gospel we see evidence that his own received him not. I wonder if Christ preferred to be alone with this blind man since he was brought unto him, knowing once that they maybe trying to deceive him into there own craftiness? Not unlike today who deny him, even those of the "nation" of Israel. There are always those who want to disclaim Him, even in the church of our own nation. It is a good interpretation nevertheless. God is saving us all the time. Even before our very own eyes!
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Mark 8
    Fred, may the Holy Spirit grace us with his understanding, when the (children of the resurrection) physical body dies our spirit (now one with the Spirit of God through the work of Christ) in the twinkle of an eye we (corruptible) shall put on Christ (incorruption), and this mortal (us) shall put on Christ (immortality). I Timothy 6:16 Who (Christ) only hath immortality, dwelling in the light (God)......Luke 20:35-36 But they (children of the resurrection) which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that (Spirit) world, and the resurrection from the dead....(vs) 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. Psalms 103:20 Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Psalms 104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire. Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? Psalms 149:6-9 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edge sword in their hand; (vs) 7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen (nations), and punishments upon the people; (vs) 9 To execute upon them the judgement written, this honour have all his saints....Revelation 14:6 And I say another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on earth (Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years (church age) are expired, (the children of) Satan shall be loosed out of his (Gods) prison (the grave, the wages of sin is death), and to every nation, and kindred and tongue and people. Matthew 13:33 And the kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven (Spirit of God) which a woman (Galatians 4:26 new, spiritual Jerusalem the mother of us all) took and hid in three measures of meal (us, the meat offering to God), till the whole (lump, all mankind) was leavened (by the Spirit of God).

    The bible says that false teachers would bring in Damnable heresies into the Church .

    Why is the Trintarian so bad ?

    It distorts the very Character of God .

    It's actually another gospel .

    So when Jesus says when the door is closed and they shut out . I never knew you , evil workers he called them .

    How can you support a doctrine not found in the Scriptures and many people suffered from it ? Even death .

    It s devils doctrine , and yes most find it confusing, that's the nature of the devil confusion.
  • Adam - in Reply on Mark 8
    It's ok to share your beliefs, but please be respectful of the majority of Christians who do not share your belief. We are to be in unity and not start unproductive quarrels. This sounds like a provoking statement to make as if inviting an argument, because someone will then reply with the normal scriptures supporting the trinity and you will refute that with your own scripture and interpretation and nothing will change. Neither party will change opinions, but may become frustrated with my others don't interpret scripture the same way you do. One strategy is to state ones interpretation without accusing the majority of following satan or anything else. And the same can always be said in reverse. God bless.
  • Carleton on Mark 8
    There is a book, written by a man, whom also believed that the last day, the second coming of Christ is also the day of judgement for the earth, the wicked, Satan and the fallen angels. The name if the book is " Restitution" by Henry Funk. A google search will bring it up. If inspired read the last chapter beginning at page 433 on "The Consummation by Christ". This is not the Bible, it is more like a commentary on a few points of how Jesus Christ, God's Lamb, fulfilled the law.

    I would make a link but I do not think we are supposed to on this website. A search to read from "Restitution" from a library for free might need to have the words : "University of Chicago" included.

  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on Mark 8:36
    "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" We chase after so many different things. Only one thing is needful. Having a fist full of dollars, a great estate, and lots of prestige doesn't mean a whole lot if you've gone to your ultimate address without the Lord. Even worse is to find that in the middle of your busy-ness, you awake to find yourself in the barren land where Christ does not dwell and life is not found. Let's not lose our life, our soul, our meaning, chasing after what is not lasting. My Prayer. Father, help me to keep my priorities right, my life holy, and my heart open to your will rather than being blinded with my own self-seeking. In Jesus' precious name I pray. Amen.

    What dose the kingdom of God look like?
  • Akari bright - in Reply on Mark 8
    Trusting in God is the greatest thing in life
  • Donna on Mark 8
    What is the true gospel or the good news? Is it the coming of the kingdom of God or Jesus dying for our sins and rose on the third day? I see in Matthew 1:14 the kingdom of God. Then I see in 1Corinthians 15:1-4 he died for our sins and rose again. I want to tell people about the good news but I have to know and understand it myself. Can you help?
  • Mishael on Mark 8
    I will tell a part of my full testimony. My salvation was akin to Pauls on the Damascus road. Later, after all the getting free from spiritual warfare; I would hear accusations against me in my mind, about sins, hating my ex, having hurtful thoughts; hating myself. People who told me to my face that anyone as bad as I had been could not possibly be saved. I didn't FEEL worthy. I thought I would let Jesus off the "hook". I saw a vision of Him on the cross but it was laying on the ground. I picked up a big rock and started hitting the nails in his hands. He was looking in my eyes ( that were streaming in tears.). Every time I hit him, He said, I Love You. I couldn't hurt Him anymore. I felt his arms around me. I woke.

    I gave him all I had ever been or done; all the memories of sin that hurt like a crown of thorns. Maybe it was faith but I asked Him to erase all the memories of sin from me. He did it. Those memories are just gone. Who I had been, was buried.

    I had to learn new things, like the joy of my Salvation.

    In my experience, the Holy Spirit is not an authoritarian that frowns when we miss the mark, Don't learn faster, don't look like other Christians that seem to have it all figured out. That's not Him. If we give all our preconceived perceptions of Him, TO HIM; He gives us the new Life of a beloved child of God. You can have as much of heaven, NOW, as you give yourself freedom to take. "Taste and see the Goodness of the Lord." YOU are why He went to the Cross. He looked all the way forward 2000 years and saw your face.

    Give Him your life (alpha, omega), and you take His Life .... as in cutting a covenant.

    Then as His Bride, Song of Solomon 6:3, 7-10; Isaiah 49:14-18, 22:-26, I am the Lord: they shall not be ashamed that wait for Me!

    There is no gender in this thought. He is YOUR beloved.

    Draw closer to Him and He will draw closer to you. You can have as much love as you are able to hold.

    A time to mourn; a time to dance. Selah.

  • Alex on Mark 8
    Jesus had to anoint the blindman a 2 nd time,he cd not see clearly under the 1st anointing,the blindman is the Church that cd not see clearly under early church doctrine the 1st anointing. Thats y Paul said we see like thru a glass darkly, nobodycan see clearly under early church doctrines thats y there are a zillion different churches everybody sees a different vision.Jesus took the blindman by his hand and led him outta of the city.Jesus took Israel by the HAND AND led her outta of Egypt AND SHE WAS REFERED TO AS THE CHURCH.THAT 2 ND ANOINTING is when the book is opened and GOD pours out his spirit on all flesh,when that which is perfect is come the 2nd anointing when the Manchild comes

    I must deny myself and follow christ.
  • Kent felker on Mark 8
    it frightens me.......because I have not put all things away so I can follow him
  • Robert Stoltz - in Reply on Mark 8
    BELIEVE on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved...that's all. Unfortunately...very few Christian claimers BELIEVE ON the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! The Holy Spirit said in the NT '' God iz a spirit and must be worshiped in SPIRIT n TRUTH! Shalom.
  • Lee Sluder on Mark 8
    This world certainly struggles with the last verses of this chapter. Satan offers so many things to get the lost to stay blinded to the light of Christ. No wonder so many die and goto hell instead of Heaven. If a man doesn't want anything to do with the Lord in this world, how can he ever expect to live and serve God in Heaven.
  • Teri on Mark 8
    Jesus models the heart and will of the father at all times. He always has compassion, as he teaches the disciples and us how to follow. Precept on precept.

    Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
