    1 Chronicles 16:11: what is the literal meaning of to seek his face - throughout the old testament basically.

    i get that we should seek the lord while he may be found, but what does it mean to actually seek his face?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 12:42
    David was a man after Gods own heart. Even with his frailties, God loved Him. That's how I learned. A servant will attend to every request of His master. He will sit in the watchtower, with the watchman; in the night. He will sit in the dark patiently waiting on what the Lord will speak.

    I cannot describe the rewards of being that kind of servant.

    Some of your questions have been answered in recent days. At the bottom of this page; look through the 1-100 history pages. It's really interesting to see what we missed a week or so, ago.

    There's history pages in Questions, and in Discussion Room.

    According to Jewish law, when does the Sabbath start and end?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 12:42
    Sun up to sundown Saturday.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 12:42
    You can google that...

    The Sabbath begins at nightfall on Friday and lasts until nightfall on Saturday. In practical terms the Sabbath starts a few minutes before sunset on Friday and runs until an hour after sunset on Saturday, so it lasts about 25 hours.

    I'm quite knowledgeable about Jewish culture, so I'll answer this correctly

    Some non-Jews have only vaguely heard about the word "Sabbath" (called Shabbat in Yiddish) but it is less known that there are a few different types of Sabbaths, such as, what I call, the Soil Sabbath in Leviticus 25. Since you obviously mean the weekly Sabbath, the quick answer is that it is generally from 6p.m. Friday evening to 6p.m. Saturday evening. The long answer involves where on the planet one lives, the season, and/or how strictly a Rabbi defines the timing of sunset

    The fact that no one rushed to answer this before me shows me 2 insights: That some of the regular responders at least have the humility to know that they didn't know, and I see an opportunity to use your question as an original teaching example: that just because the Bible doesn't mention a keyword, or a phrase, or the details, or it's own doctrine, the ancient Jews from the time of Moses were very smart to figure it out from Genesis chapter one

    Too bad white culture Bible Colleges and seminaries don't teach logic, reading comprehension, and analytical thinking skills because apostasy and unnecessary controversies such as the centuries old Trinity, the Rapture, and the fable about Genesis Six's sexual "angels" continue as proofs that most pastors, ministers and priests have failed in their teachings and duty-of-care responsibility charged by God. Furthermore, they are too afraid to question and investigate the fake additions to the New Testament that has been wrongly attributed to Saint Paul, such as the supposed dogma that 'women are inferior and unable to teach'

    In Matthew 12:2 It appears Jesus broke the commandment to honor the Sabbath, is this true or is this symbolic for something?
  • Mishael in Luke - in Reply on Matthew 12:2
    It was the Pharisees trying to catch Jesus in some kind of sin. Jesus used the situation to show the Pharisees (people who hit others on the head with rules), that they were unmerciful.

    23

    And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.

    24

    And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day, that which is not lawful?

    25

    And Jesus said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

    26

    How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

    27

    And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

    28

    Therefore the Son of man IS LORD also of the sabbath.

    Hi Charnelle, the answer is yes, you can share the gospel and bring someone to God. Please read Acts 2:38-42.
  • Lisa on Matthew 12:31
    my question is about divorce and remarriage. My husband left after 23 years of marriage. Shortly after I was remarried to someone who said he was a Christian but isn't. I broke up with him 3 times because of it, but kept going back to him because I felt so bad. Now I'm unequally yoked and feel as though I've co.mitted a sin that I can't be forgiven of. My life is miserable, full of anxiety and fear. Its causing a lot of problems to the point I want out of this marriage. Please help.
  • Hogan - in Reply on Matthew 12
    Hi Lisa, please read the whole chapter of 1 Corinthians 7
  • Mishael on 1 Corinthians chapter 7 - in Reply on Matthew 12:31
    You need to speak to your Pastor, your pastors wife; or a Christian counsellor if you seek privacy.

    I've been divorced 36 years. Born again 35 years. I have no desire to be married again. Divorce seriously harms children emotionally; which should be held uppermost in our Mind; before diving into another marriage. I speak from experience.

    Scripture says do not be unequally yoked with an unbeliever. A pony and a Clydesdale horse cannot pull a wagon out of the barn. Did your husband know you are a Christian? Did he allow you to go to church?

    This why you would do well to speak to your pastor/ Counselor; before telling kids anything.

    I pray the Lord would show you what to do.

    Read 1 Corinthians chapter 7

    I don't understand verse 12:50?
  • Confused - in Reply on Matthew 12
    Notice it didn't say Father because God is the Father. Brother, sister, mother if they are saved then they are brother, sister and mother. Same for you and I, our saved friends are our brothers, sisters and mother.

    36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. May I add that every word typed or wrote also shall we give account of when judged.
  • Cynthia on Matthew 12
    I have been told so many times that you don't work on the sabbath. I am glad now that I read it myself to know that is not true. You can do good and help one another any day.
  • Ruben Hartness - in Reply on Matthew 12
    Cynthia--Sabbath means Rest in the Hebrew Manuscripts, and Christ became our Sabbath after the crucifixion--come unto me and I will give you rest.
