    When Jesus sent the 12 disciples out to heal the sick, raise the dead, cure the lepers and drive out the demons. Jesus had given them the power to do every thing he told them to do. Jesus already knew what what his disciples was capable of. He told them what to look out for, and if a particular area doesn't work out, to kick the dust of the off their feet and more on to the next town. Jesus instruct the disciples not to carry money or a change of clothes, nor to accept money or anything of value. Eat what is sit before you, and don't worry about anything. Jesus favor his on. I f you believe in me and I believe in you your faith,you will excell and do you will do unbelievable miracle. Trust in me, and not lean into your own understanding. I'm reference to

    Matthew 10
  • Patty Tozi
    Where is God when my family runs away from the truth of who l really am in God? I exposed what the truth of what l went through, since l have an illness now that has hovered over me 2 years, as l worked non stop helping others. Always the worlds way. Now for the last 6 months l have turned all evilness of the world and the people who carry it inside to only God. Because of that, l can expose everyone for who they are, and how in God's light l can help. The corvid 19 l see taking over as a silent killer and more and more of mans control. Revelation has started. The enemy is now going after all the negatives you still hold to get you away from your Heavenly Father. The Christian's will have to fight as warriors to have an eternal life in Heaven. Become a warrior in the word of truth--God's Book the Bible, and on your knees keep God close as you battle. I cannot warn you more then this-- for in my dreams God shows me truth. Do not straddle the fence any more. Now is the day to chose the side you want. Talk with your kids. Do not let them suffer...l now pray for all that is reading this in The Blood of Jesus-- stay true to your Heavenly Father to the ending of your life. And Fight not only for yourself but for others God puts in front of you. Put yourself in His Hands Daily. And Fight for "The Good Life of Eternity" to the End.

    Friends, by God's Grace, and for His Glorification alone I share an insight.

    In genetics both parents provide DNA,but the BLOOD only comes from the FATHER.

    14 generations all.

    Matthew was not a Jew, so he would not have understood as the other listed genealogies go through the other line to Mary, although ironically, Matthrwwas a physician.

    God the Father, and through His Son Yeshua , the Word made flesh.


    Worthy to be Praised!

    My honor & privilege to quicken you all in HIM!

    I've always wondered why I never heard anyone else mention this:

    All, including the Bible itself, say that Jesus was a direct descendant of David; however, Joseph was the direct descendant of David and Jesus was and is the Son of God (due to the Holy Spirit).

    Therefore, one would have to consider Joseph to be but the stepfather of Jesus. And that, of course, would mean that Jesus was not the direct descendant of David.

    I love my Jesus, and I love my Bibles. But something is not correct, here.
  • Joseph
    Jesus is like an adopted son of Joseph. I got this from the Jewish Virtual Library about adoption, "Once a child has been adopted, the adoptee must be treated as if it were biologically the adopter's own. The adoptee is required to honor and respect his/her parents in accordance with the laws of the Torah."

    As to his earthly identity, it follows that Jesus is indeed Joseph's son and belonging to the tribe of Judah in the lineage of David.
  • Richard P DiDomenico
    That is really stretching it. No one Loves Jesus more than I; I even have the cross on the wallpaper of my phone. I am also a student of the Bible, but it is what it is. Don't you realize the Jesus is the son of God? Why do you think he is called as being of the family of God? Half of his life is do to the Holy Spirit, which is of God the Creator.

    God bless and take care.
  • Mishael on the LET US who created everything
    LET US. That is the Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) conversing with each other. All three created everything.

    Genesis 1:26

    Genesis 3:22

    Genesis 11:7

    God willed it; The Word spoke it (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit performed it.
  • Phillip Gallegos
    I believe with good faith that The Father (Almighty God), the Word (the Christ Lord) and the holy spirit are ONE.

    When God acts it is also the works of the Word and the Holy Spirit

    When the Word acts it is also the works of the Father and His Holy Spirit

    When the Holy Spirit acts it is also the works of the Word and the Father

    God the Father of Creation expresses His will through both the Word and His Holy Spirit

    By the Word of the Lord was the heavens created

    And God said let there be light

    And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
    Michael Rood explains this in Rood Awakening on tv. He is a descendant from Jesse as I recall. Rood explains it in detail.
  • Richard P DiDomenico
    Who is Michael Rood and who is a descendant of Jesse? Do you mean Jesus?
    Type in "Lineage of David to Yeshua", and you should find it. On youtube. Alison
    Yeshua means Jesus. (I repeated so many times because I did not think they had accepted my comment.FYI.)
    Michael Rood is on youtube and can be found under Lineage of David to Yeshua. I typed in Michael Rood Jesus David. God bless you. Alison
  • Onnye A Chamberlain for verse 16
    I too find the genealogy of Jesus confusing. Matthew 1:16 says Jacob is the father of Jesus but 1:20 says Joseph son of David. Which is father of Joseph Jacob or David?
  • Jes
    Matthew 1: 16 says Jacob is the father of Joseph, not Jesus. Matthew 1:20 tells us that Joseph comes from the generation of David.
  • Shay
    Hello Onnye. Go back and read it again but slowly. Matthew 1: 16 states that Jacob begat Joseph, meaning Jacob is Joseph's dad and that Joseph is the husband of Mary, who gave birth to Christ ( proof of His humanity). Matthew 1:20 states Joseph thou son of David to show Joseph's lineage to the house of David which is the connection to Jesus being the messiah from the house of David. Remember Matthew speaks of the lineage of Jesus which proves that He, Jesus, is of the house of David. I hope this helps.

    I was looking for a verse today, Easter, for study and positive inspiration. My worst fear was realized when the verse you provided was spoken by a God rejector and hypocrite - Eliphaz - accusing Job.

    I do love this app and use it almost daily!
  • SAAH h Joey
    Is it actually forbidden by scripture not for christians to drink. alcohol?

    you may pls help with scripture references.
  • Adam
    Hello, Jesus's first miracle was turning water into alcoholic wine which was at a party, as confirmed by this verse: John 2:10. Since Jesus did this I do not believe it is a sin to drink moderately. However, it is a sin to get drunk. It's also a sin to lead others into temptation or to stumble, for example, a recovering alcoholic is with you and you order a drink. 1 Corinthians 8:9-13
  • Jesse
    Adam, I agree that it is a sin to get drunk because we're to be sober-minded. (1 Peter 4:7, 2 Timothy 4:5).These people weren't drinking moderately because they were already drunk. If it is a sin to be drunk, why would Jesus give them more wine if they were already drunk They bring out good wine first, and after everybody has been drinking for a few days, if they run out of the good wine, they bring out the cheap stuff. Nobody knows the difference because they are pretty intoxicated by then! They ran out, and were given 120 to 180 gallons more. If they're already drunk, and are given another 180 gallons of wine, how do you conclude that since Jesus did this, it's okay to drink moderately
  • Jesse
    I would like share my thoughts on whether or not a Christian should drink alcohol. When I learned the literal definition of the word faith meant persuasion, it gave me a whole new look on things. I used to drink alcohol, even as a believer. You see, as believers, we live by faith, or more literally from out of faith, as a source. Romans Chapter 14 says that that which is not of faith is sin. When I know that faith means persuasion, I come to realize that anything I do, which I am not being persuaded by God's Spirit to do, it is sin. I think of faith as the presence and activity of God's Spirit in a believers life. What is He persuading me to do Is He persuading me to take that drink
  • Mickey
    Jesse: I think the key word is MODERATION. If that is difficult then try abstaining. I know without a doubt that God delivers people from booze and drugs. He did for me. The only problem is telling people you've been born again with a beer in your hand. There are scriptures that say your freedom from law may hurt someone else who isn't as secure about salvation. You have a witness to protect. Your changed life is what other people are checking out. After I got saved I started going to church. My party friends came to take me out but I'd say hey why don't you come to church with me Sunday! They stop coming around. I was sad but God gave me all new friends :D I love Jesus huge.
  • Jesse
    Mickey, I agree. I hope I didn't give the impression that I have been born again but still drink. I quit drinking back in 1993. I have friends who drink and I've even been told by them that it's okay to have a drink every now and then. I guess every now and then to them would be considered moderation. I don't believe the Lord says it's okay to drink alcohol, even in moderation. Now I'm not telling any believer that they shouldn't drink. That's between them and the Lord. But if a believer wants to know if it's okay or not okay to consume alcohol, the question should be what is the Lord leading them to do Is He leading them to drink If not, then maybe that's their answer.
  • Chris
    There are Scripture references to this which are general warnings. The first one we cite is: Ephesians 5:18 "Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit". Apostle Paul warns of high consumption of alcohol which leads to loss of self control & sin, but rather to be filled (drunk) with God's Spirit. A believer filled with the Holy Spirit is truly a joy to be near rather than one who is inebriated. Other references: Luke 21:34, Romans 13:13, 1 Corinthians 5:11, 6:10, Ephesians 5:18, Genesis 9:21, 19:30-36, Proverbs 20:1, 23:20,30,31, are some for you to look at. So, alcohol is not prohibited per se , but warnings are given which should alert us to its use/results.
  • Mishael to SAAH
    Here are the scriptures on strong drink you asked for: (some abbreviations) Ephesians 5:18, Proverbs 20:1 & 23:29-35 ,Galatians 5:21, 1 Corinthians 6:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:7, Romans 12:12, 14:21, Isaiah 5:11, Psalms 104:15,
    1 Peter 2:11-12
    I know it's ok to eat meat but when it becomes gluttony, it's not a good witness. Write these in pencil back of your Bible

    What are the seven spirits of god
  • Mickey on Isaiah 1412-16
    Actually in Isaiah chapter 14:12-16, satan says I WILL 5 times!

    God is not destroying people's lives. One of satans other names is: DESTROYER. And he is the ACCUSER of the brethern. Revelation 12:10, Job 1:6,12 and Zechariah 3:1

    Part of our problem is that we do not trust God. We think he does all the painful things. Like why is he allowing satan to get near us? Hear that accusatory question? Or, why doesn't Jesus just heal everybody? Why does bad things happen to good people?
    There is the WILL of God. God gave free will to mankind in the garden of Eden. Satan has a will too. He's not going to do anything good with it. Read Job 1. He's defeated. Intercede for loved ones.
  • Neil MacEwan
    Re Matthew 1:17....the genealogy...start with Abraham as 1, Isaac 2, etc, and since there were 3 batches of 14, that would make Jesus the 42nd...but continue with the count suggested above...and you will find that Jesus is 41!.....?
    So there is a missing generation?
    Any thoughts on this?
    Who is the missing generator?
    I have an answer that satisfies me....but what say you?

    Verse 2 and 3 Judas should read JUDAH! Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of JUDAH!
