  • Andrew Kingsly Raj for verse 32
    Matthew 22:32

    Let every multitude confess "Jesus Christ is God". He was crucified and was resurrected and went to Heaven. He is coming back as He promised.
  • Rick Colombe
    To Mickey and others who have embraced the "rapture theory". I gave an incorrect date of 1844. The "rapture theory" was actually "invented" in 1830 by John Nelson Darby and was embraced by Margaret MacDonald from Scotland. Do your research and you'll find the "rapture" is a false doctrine. May God bless you and keep you true to His Word.
  • Bob Hilt
    Darby's family, that great "Christian", pre trib scholar owned Leap castle in Ireland reported to be the most haunted castle in the land. Birds of a feather.

    Scofield who popularized the rapture in the USA cheated his mother in law out of her life savings and never repaid her. Supposedly he got "saved" in prison.

    For all you Scofield lovers - get out your zionist Scofield Bible and read

    1 John 5:7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

    Scofield footnote "O" says this verse has no real Biblical authority - in other words it does not belong in the Bible....

    He was a charlatan and pseudo Bible scholar and you trust his pre trib rapture notes and dispensational theology?

    He never paid a penny of support to his kids? both daughters said that and the Bible says in the mouths of 2 or 3 witnesses let everything be established.

    He went to jail for swindling his mother in law of her life savings and NEVER paid her back

    even when he made big money with the bible sales. WHY did he never repay them?

    Why did he leave his DIVORCED wife and kids penniless?

    Scofield's daughter and wife begged him to help them and he did nothing. Scofield made big money off his fake bible and did nothing for his kids.

    1 Timothy 5:8But if any provide not for his own [family], and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. The Bible says Scofield was an infidel.

    No, it was UNGODLY people too lazy to study the bible who ignored his sins and filled those "churches" .

    that is why harry potter outsells the "bible" today

    When Hollywood makes movies about "LEFT BEHIND" you better check your theology.

    Read Jesus in Matthew 13:30 when he said in the parable of the wheat that the tares or weeds get TAKEN FIRST.

    So did Jesus get mistaken about the rapture timing?
  • Mishael to Bob H
    Are you like this all the time? Do you know what it's like to live with someone who counters everything you say or do with 19 scriptures to explain Bob's take on it?

    I used to be annoying too because I study all manner of things, like geology, meteorology, archeology, space, earthquakes, active volcanos, weird art.

    I'm like a big sponge. I have an outlet for it, tho. My kid knows I do this and he studies stuff too. Lol. We have lively discussions.

    I've been a lot happier since I really noticed how Jesus handled crowds, his disciples, his parents, Pharisees. I studied his every move and manner; how he drew on experiences of the crowd to tell his parables. He was righteous inside, but his heart was Mercy. Pharisees and scribes were complete opposite and didn't understand what Jesus was saying or doing, because their minds were rock hard about their "office" or profession. Jesus cares very much about simpler people; teachable people; children.

    I was taught in church that people who say BUT a lot are really goats because they were always butting heads with others. Not open to anything not in their file box.

    I saw Him or a vision for seconds. What I saw 35 years ago, has never faded. He erased all my knowledge and some memories. When I realized it, I never missed it one bit. All I want to know is Jesus, the Son of God. He has plans for our lives and often we weave in and out of that. If people coming in here, could really grasp who Jesus is; It would totally change their lives. Son of Man. All GOD and all human. He knows the person who lives inside of our soul; mind. We can't hide nothing.

    Why not tell people about what Bob knows intimately, about Jesus. Your personal relationship with your Savior. And how they can have it to. Can you explain the Majesty of the Godhead to simple people? Who need Light so they can find Jesus in a dark world that's getting darker? Just think on it. I love you Bob, in Jesus.
  • Rick Colombe
    To Mickey on Matthew 22. I would love to know exactly where in God's Word it talks about being "raptured". You even give a when, where, etc. and what comes after this rapture. I suggest you do prayerful research on this subject, where you'll not find a"rapture" in God's written word. Look up Margaret McDonold. I will. I believe the date was 1844.
  • Paul
    Matthew 22:41-46 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

    Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.

    (Mark 12:36) For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

    If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

    And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

    The Godhead set forth:

    David himself said by the Holy Ghost (Holy Ghost, member of the Godhead)

    LORD, is God the Father (member of the Godhead)

    said unto my Lord, is Jesus Christ, David's Lord. (member of the Godhead)

    So, God the Father said unto David's Lord Jesus Christ, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

    This would have been the first time these Sanhedrins would have heard of God being present as 3 separate personages.

    Now they were beholding God speaking in His Son, Jesus Christ.

    The Father, Son and Holy Ghost are One God but three separate personages.
  • Helena for verse 24
    This is disturbing, it makes me so sick that if a woman was with and man and he died she would be forced to marry his brother!!! I'm sick and tired of women being treated as if all they are good for is making babies
  • Paul

    Your're honesty is appreciated.

    That was Old Testament Law, or the Law of Moses, and has no impact today.

    That was a different time and the mind set of women back then were not of the mind set of women today.
  • Chris for verse 24
    Helena, in the Eastern/Middle Eastern culture of that time, the right & proper thing to do for the widow was that she was cared for & provided for. She wasn't just a baby-maker, because the unmarried brother was duty-bound to look after his deceased brother's wife. And of course, there was a sense of societal stigma associated with an unattached woman. In other words, in those cultures it would be awful for a woman to be 'left on the shelf'. Refer to the book of Ruth to get the full story: a good example of widow Ruth, a Moabitess lady, who married Boaz, a kinsman-redeemer (also a picture of Christ's redeeming work for those He purchases). In India, amongst Hindus, if a woman's husband died, she could not face the shame of being on her own & unprotected, so while he was being cremated, she would then cast herself alive on the funeral pyre (known as Sati, pron. Sutti). This has been outlawed now, but still goes on in remote parts. I hope this gives you better understanding.
  • Mary Sue Richey for verse 30
    Will husband and wife know each other?
  • Mickey for verse 30
    I believe after the Rapture that married couples will know each other. We will have discarded our fleshly bodies for spiritual bodies that don't corrupt. We're going to a party for the Lamb; the Bride will meet her Bridegroom.
    As I have read but not sure where, people who miss the rapture will of course have to survive 3 1/2 Years of pure hell on earth with a very mad Antichrist who demands your head. If you die saved during that time you'll join the rapture group. If you get saved & survive the 3&1/2years, their bodies won't be transformed & they will have kids.
    Question? Is your First love, Jesus Christ?
    Trust God. Trust in the Word.
  • David Asher
    When we except Christ the anointed one as our LORD AND SAVIOR to get into HEAVEN. What is our job now as a Christian here on earth? To bring others into the KINGDOM of LIGHT?? Is it to avoid the lust of flesh, eyes, pride of life?? What is the main purpose now? To remain single or marry? Please help me out I do not understand. Some people say we can truly enjoy life others have told me... "we must deny flesh and our desires daily and live for the LORD"

    reference 1 John 2 :15-20
  • Joe
    David - I think you said it all - show others the way while keeping ourselves on the strait and narrow trying to be the best example that we can be. There are many aspects, but if you want to say a main purpose, I believe it is to follow Jesus Christ as an example. When unsure - study/remember/reread the scriptures. I have never yet encountered a situation where scripture failed to provide a clear sense of direction - although maybe not what I wanted to do or hear, it has always been the right thing.
  • Betty
    David, I believe you're right that our purpose is to share the good news of Jesus. Some (like Paul) can do this better if they're single, while others (like Peter) can spread the good news better if they're married. Just as each of us is called to bring others to Jesus through various vocations (some through music, some through art, some through sports, etc.), we each need to ask God your question about marraige. Jesus spoke of some making themselves eunuchs for the Kingdom of God, but recognized that not all could do this. So we need to find out from God if we can better accomplish the work he sent us to earth to do married to a certain person, and whether it should be a celibate union.
  • Obbie Beal
    JESUS quoted verse 1-14 above, and we see JESUS mind is on SALVATION for each of us thereby being in the KINGDOM OF GOD. Notice the one who failed to meet the standard for being in the KINGDOM therefore that person who is bind hand and foot and taken away, and cast into outer darkness where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
  • Steven kite
    I just would like to say praise you KING JESUS!!!!
  • Wayne Tucker
    Kerry, follow the teachings of Christ and you will not go wrong! Jesus is our leader, his words are correct and powerful. Steven Botts already answered your questions. Which is the correct answer. God Bless!
  • Kerry
    This is likely the wrong place to ask, but I heard from a Jewish man that they do not believe either, 1-in Jesus,or 2-that he was not resurrected, I can't remember now which, but I have read that the Jewish people ARE God's chosen children, yet how can this be if either 1 or 2 from above is correct? KJV says to be saved we MUST believe in Jesus, which I do, but Jewish doctrine is confusing me.
  • Stephen Botts
    The Jews are still God's chosen people. But, having rejected the true Messiah, Jesus, the gospel is gone now to the Gentiles. Until the time of the gentiles are fulfilled the eyes of the Jews are blinded. Not that a Jewish person can't be saved. But they are willingly blind as to Jesus being the Messiah. They will recognize Him as the One whom they pierced at His second advent.
  • Gale Myers
    Matthew 22: 30 seems to say that the family relationships we have now will not be continued in heaven. I do not dispute that, but I am a little confused by it. Many of us look forward to seeing our parents, our spouces, our children and grand children. Can you make this a little more clear for me?
  • Richard castillo
    Hello, Jesus will be the center of our attention that's who we will want to see, and the 2nd greatest commandment Love your neighbor as yourself, I believe we will love one another equally and be just as happy to see a stranger in heaven as we will our earthly family
  • Stanjett
    they will be there but we will not be married to them. For in heaven we neither marry or are given in marriage but are as the angels in heaven which do not marry.
  • Cassi
    When we get to heaven we wil be in a different form, but we will know who our family members there are, even the ones who died before we were born. We will know who everyone there is. I dont think we will look at them as my current spouse or parent or sibling, but one thing I know we definitely will be fellowshipping and rejoicing with them.
  • Ann
    Gale Myers, I believe we will know everyone. The rich man in hell knew Lazarus in Abraham's bosom. Also, the rich man in hell knew Abraham even though they had never met. Family relationships are for here and now. If marriage was forever a widow or widower would not be allowed to remarry.
  • Gale Myers
    Thank you Ann. I agree with you. I am getting old. I am past 80 now and sometimes I can't remember WHY I believe the things I believe. Thanks again. Hold my hand tight Jesus. We are close to home. I don't want to get lost now.
  • Ann
    Gale Myers, I am so happy to have helped you. You will not be lost. Yes, we are almost there, the Lord is so close. May the Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. Bless you my friend. Isaiah 46:4 And even to your old age I am he and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear even I will carry, and will deliver you.
  • Obbie Beal

    17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? 18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? 19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. 21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
  • Leese
    I do not ever want to hear those words from Jesus: I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:23. I know I am Born Again and covered by the atoning Blood of my Savior Jesus, but my mind has been under attack with really bad thoughts about Father God and Jesus burdening me daily. When these thoughts happen doubt and fear creep in and it is wearing me out. Pray for me
  • Joe hutchinson
    The verse you referenced is about a man how didnt have faith but was trying to work his way in to heaven so the lord didnt know him. If you've ever believed you have no worries the lord knows you.
  • Lisa Dawson
    Thank You Joe. I finally realized that these last days have been so dark that the darkness seemed to be swallowing me up. I came across a song "Master the Tempest is Raging" by Acapeldridge on Youtube. I know that Devils are on the rise since the time is short but I am in this race for the long haul and Jesus is my prize. God Bless
