    What is the difference of being in God & being of God?

    who was the people that rose when Jesus open the grave
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Matthew 27

    "And, behold, (1) the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and (2) the earth did quake, and (3) the rocks rent; And (3) the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God."Matthew 27:51-54

    This was preceded by 3 hours of darkness from noon til 3 PM.

    We are not told any more information about the saints who arose only to die again as did Lazarus who who Jesus raised from the dead. Jesus was The Firstfruits of those who have died In Christ.

    "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept."1Co 15:20

    The Old Testament saints, believed God, just as Job of old trusted God.

    "For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me."Job 19:25-27

    We will be raised INCORRUPTIBLE!

    "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."1Co 15:51-52

    These that arose were not changed; not raised incorruptible.

    Nina, May the Spirit grace you with HIS wisdom and His understanding.

    Matthew 27:52-53 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

    (53) and came out of the graves after HIS RESURRECTION, and went in to the holy city, and appeared to many.

    Understanding these scriptures takes other scriptures and the HOLY SPIRIT causing you to understand.

    Isaiah 26:19 Thy dead men shall live, TOGETHER WITH MY DEAD BODY SHALL THEY ARISE......

    This prophecy is three fold, Christ promises the (called out) saints of the old testament and the (called out) saints of the new testament along with (HIS) dead body would RISE TOGETHER.

    Hebrews 11:16 But now they (saints of old) desire a better country, that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called there God: for he hath prepared them a (HOLY) CITY. The one in Matthew 27:53

    Hebrews 11:39-40 And these all (saints of old), having obtained a good report through faith, RECEIVED NO THE PROMISE (eternal life, it would be given to them at Christ resurrection).

    (40) God having provided some better thing for us (the called out of the new testament will never see death, we were resurrected with Christ), that they (saints of old) without us (new saints) should not be made perfect (image of Christ, who only hath immortality, [eternal life] 1 Timothy 6:16).

    Luke 20:36 Neither can they (the called out) die any more (they [WE ARE SIN] died with Christ on the cross, were buried and arose with him): for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, BEING THE CHILDREN OF THE RESURRECTION.

    Revelation 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. THIS IS THE FIRST 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.

    Revelation 7:4 Describes the called out saints of the old testament that were sealed with the Holy Spirit (Christ).
  • MARK MATHEWS on Matthew 27:52
    First of all in Ephesians 4:8-12 GOD descends First to into Paradise, a great Water separates Hades=Hell with Paradise in the lower Parts of the Earth. GOD=Jesus 3 full Nights and 3 full Days in belly of the Earth, then arises with the Saint's to 3rd Heaven. Abraham and the Beggar are with them all. That is why Hades has more than doubled in size as GOD said it did. Paradise is no more. GOD took it all away at his Resurrection. Resurrected Saints where seen by Many, Matthew 27: 50-55. Proving the Resurrection of GOD and his Saints into Glory=3rd Heaven. Where we are hoping and Praying to get to. As they Ascended to Glory so will we. GOD= Lord Jesus Christ proves this in Bodily form, to show us all what wait's us all. Glory!!! I hope this helps all of you as it did me.
  • Galatians 5 Works of the Flesh on Matthew 27:49
    Galatians 5

    19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these:

    Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

    20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

    21 Envyings, murders*, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

    *anyone ever say to you; "you are dead to me?" That's a murder.

  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 27:49
    In that portion of Scripture, Jesus had cried out, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (verse 46). The people around the cross who heard Jesus' cry thought He was calling out to Elias (Elijah), whereas Jesus was calling out to God His Father.

    But the people were expecting Elijah to come before the Messiah, but they didn't know or failed to remember what Jesus said earlier, that John the Baptist did come in fulfilment of prophecy (Malachi 3:1) by coming in the spirit & power of Elijah (Matthew 11:7-14).

    Isaiah 55:9

    James Bible

    For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    James Bible

    For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater

    James Bible

    So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it

    Does the Old or New Testament predict the end of days ??
  • How To Make Bible Study Explode on Matthew 27
    Know what? If we got a new video game we'd be awake 24/7, figuring out how to play it. Another 2 years trying to beat the game (including Time spent on YouTube watching cheats and tricks).

    We're all over the place trying to Beat That Game!!!

    Tell me why we don't go at the Bible the same way?? Dig, dig deeper, read commentaries on here, read commentaries on Google.

    The Holy Spirit is your TEACHER?!? Ask Him. If you'll sit still long enough and be quiet, you will get answers.

    PRAY for a TEACHABLE spirit.

    They're not cheats; but your Bible will start speaking to your spirit.

    Get a Study Bible that has Center of Each page, reference columns: with the abc notes within the scriptures. Those send you to other scriptures that EXPAND the meanings or reveal a prophesy.

    :D. You'll get as good as Chris eventually.

    Get a large print concordance. Serious study. The Bible and "helps" are in the front of the books. Tells you the "tricks" on how to use them. The best maps and charts are on Google.

    I was fooling around one day with the Search Engine on this website... typed in CHINA. Up pops 3 scriptures!! Pandemics in the end times come from there and around the coasts to N Africa. May be places where poor people have no food at all?

    Pandemics are real. And we are going to see one after another. It's in the Bible.

    Learn to study! For yourselves. Share what you find, on here. IT IS FUN! God speaks to us through His Word.

    When you sit down to study: pray: I HAVE THE SAME MIND OF CHRIST !! I receive it by faith right now. God watches over His Word To Perform it.

    Give that fine mind of yours To The Holy Spirit, stand back, and see what He will show you. Habakkuk 2:2-4

    You gotta get plugged into the Holy Spirit. Depend on Him. Pursue Him. Be quiet and Listen To Him.

    Catch the fire! Mishael
  • Rob on Matthew 27
    Matthew 27.43

    He trusted in God ; let him deliver him now , if he will have him : for he said , I am the Son of God .

    Notice Jesus was condemned for claiming to be the Son of God .

    " the Son OF God " not GOD the SON . It can not be both , the Bible never says Jesus is GOD . There is only 1 LORD GOD .

    Yes Jesus is born OF God , not at all the same thing . Jesus was condemned for claiming to be the Son OF God .

    God bears witness that Jesus is his Son .

    witnessed by the word of God the Bible and even Jesus enemies ?

    GOD the SON , never mentioned in the Bible .

    If any person came in any time and said He is GOD no one in their right mind would give it a second thought .
  • Alex - in Reply on Matthew 27
    Comments by Alex on God the Son in Hebrews 1 it says unto the Son he says thy throne O God is forever.It was the FATHER himself that said that everything has multiply after His Kind in heaven and earth and we see that Jesus is able to multiply himself in humanity via his seed the word,and he said to whom the word came that good seed it made them Gods and the scripture cannot be broken. Jesus does not reproduce himself after mankind he neva had any flesh and blood children,All his children were spirits the H.G Plural simply b/c his seed is the WORD which is spirit thus his children are spirits Gods, He breathe on them and they received the H.G.,His breath was his word which is his seed as he said the Good seed is the words of God. His woman is the world as God so loved the world etc and the field is the WORLD where that good seed will be sown meaning humanity,thats y the Prophets saw the WORLD in travail and birth pains simply b/c of his precious seed the living word he reproduces after the God kind, thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit thus he reproduces after the God kind proving he is truly God the Son. He only took on flesh and blood to die for the sins of the WORLD BUT HE SAID B/F ABRAHAM WAS I AM.. He even tells us his WORD is the very seed of the Kingdom. Only God cd reproduce after the SPIRIT/God KIND . There cd not be an Israel of God if Jesus cd not reproduce after the God kind which is the H.G. the child of Promise Sprits ( Gods ) That are gona BE BORN IN US SINNERS via his seed/word the new covenant. Whosoever receives one such CHILD IN MY NAME RECEIVES ME thats his offspring THE H.G. God .GB
  • Rob - in Reply on Matthew 27
    If a person understands that there is only 1 God then you can not confuse Jesus as God .

    It's really that simple .

    James did well when he said thou believes there is 1 God you do well , even the devils know this and tremble .

    You are not doing well .

    Matthew 27v46

    Matthew 27 v 50

    The death of the trinity doctrine .

    If you believe the trinity doctrine God left Jesus alone here and Jesus did not know why .

    Gods in full control none else here and many other places in the Bible

    Jesus still had the Holy Spirit seen in verse 50 until he gave it up .

    But this should be enough if you can sink some thought into it ...

    The trinity here in Father , Son and Holy Ghost are now separate. Poof goes you triune God that never existed to begin with !
  • Mary boland on Matthew 27:51
    What is this for me? Help...
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 27:51
    Matthew 27:51: "And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent".

    This was another great event that took place apart from Jesus' Sacrifice & His Resurrection. Right at the time of Jesus' death, at the evening oblation, the officiating priest would have seen this spectacular event of the heavy veil (curtain) that separated the Holiest Place from the Holy Place in the Temple, was torn apart from top to bottom. If man had cut it, it would probably be cut from bottom to top, but God showed that He did it, from the top downwards.

    This is significant for you & me as it is one of God's declarations that the Work of the Cross (that Work that was planned from the beginning of time for mankind's sins), was finally accomplished with the death of His Son Jesus Christ. His death not only was Jesus being our substitute to pay for our sins, but also averted God's Anger against us sinners. So the rending of the veil indicated that God also opened up the way for those who believe on Jesus, both Jew & Gentile, to now have access direct to God without the need for a priest to intercede or make sacrifice or oblation. Roman Catholics still go to their priest for confession, but the Way has been opened for us to approach God, through His Son, to talk to Him, to confess our sins, & to enjoy His Presence in our lives. Had Christ not died, had the veil not be rent, had not Jesus arisen from the grave, we would still be in our sins & stand guilty before God. Jesus' Sacrifice for us was truly great & for eternity & so we ever remain grateful to Him & growing in love & faith for Him Who has done it all for us.

  • Lionjudah on Matthew 27
    "I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it." He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

    12I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

    13And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

    14I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

    15That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

    16And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.

    17I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

    18I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

    5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

    6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

    7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

    8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

    Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
  • Steve B - in Reply on Matthew 27
    Hi Cheryl - Genesis Chapter 1 is an account of the creation in a step by step manner all the way through Genesis Chapter 2 v 3 where the creation story ends (It is a sort of bulleted fashion - at least that is what we call it these days). Then in Genesis Chapter 2 v 4, you start to reading about the creation story again, in a more detailed fashion. Once you realize that is happening it will start to fall into place. There are many areas of Scripture were a statement is made in one chapter and then repeated in more detail later in the same chapter or future chapter. May God bless your way!
  • Greg Beetham on Matthew 27
    I've tried to search for an answer but no luck so far. It isn't complicated, I'm interested for the moment in the dates at the bottom of the page directly below the centre margin with all the reference notes in my KJ version 1839 reprinted in 1949 (with helps).

    Are the dates shown in the New Testament e.g. such as 4 B.C. or 32 A.D. an approximation or is there verification somewhere about how they were authenticated?
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 27
    I don't think there will ever be a consensus of the exact dates of our Lord's Birth & Death as it's not revealed in Scripture. I think most arrive at their findings from considering the start of Herod's rule, age of baby boys at that time, the start of John the Baptist's ministry, Jesus' age (30) at His Baptism/ministry (approx.), the Passover timing which was strictly adhered to by the Jews, etc. Some have even looked closely to past lunar eclipses, comets, earthquakes, etc. to establish a timeline. Even with all this, no one has come up with clear dates that can be agreed upon, which of course may be for a Divine reason. Who knows!

    Lorenzo Genesis 22

    Thank you for your reply to my question on Abraham and Isaac

    This is what I'm getting at ...these things can come from your own head(wicked reasoning) .

    I am not questions Abraham or his faith in the LORD ,but just because he believed it was the True God did not make it necessarily so..... There is another interested party in all this that wanted to scuttle the Lords purpose in bringing mankind to its former good standing by his only begotten son Jesus the Christ

    How many times in history has he become an angle of light and tricked someone, Jesus warned us about , the wolf. Angle of light. The false prophet. The anti Christ . The leaven of the Pharisee . The son of perdition. And so on.

    My thoughts are that Abraham was probable tricked. Almighty God saved him from doing the deed because he had been tricked by that False God which many people in the world today are still chasing after. ( You will not be tested beyond what you can bear but he will make the way out for you so you are able bear it. ) Satan has tried to distroyed the Lords purpose and has failed every time and his end is near ,...... Down to the earth with great anger knowing he has but a short period of time.

    Jesus said " it is finished, I have conquered.

    Praise the Lord
  • The Bible showing what year 2020 looks like on Matthew 27
    Romans 1 speaks on perversions that people do to each other and kids too.

    Romans 1:26 and forward:

    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: [women laying with women]

    27 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. [disease]

    28 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;

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

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

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

    32 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.

    It's not mentioned but surely in 2020 we can understand, since it's frequently on the evening news!! that our society is sex trafficking children of both sexes. Kids are grabbed off the streets in broad daylight.

    Pedophiles and kiddie porn addicts find many victims on Facebook!! Little kids tell where they live; they don't know the danger.

    Get rid of social websites! It's a killing field.

    Ask the cops that hunt the traffickers and pedophiles.

    You could never convince me that Facebook was invented for evangelism. It was invented to destroy AOL chat rooms and be king of social networks. I'm old, I saw people who had their whole lives imploded because they used aol to lead secret lives.

    Nowadays it's all out there in the open. Little children being destroyed. WWJ say?

  • NobodyInThisWorld - in Reply on Matthew 27
    Two Bible verses the Lord brought to my attention a while back that gives me hope concerning the events in our time:

    If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they. Ecclesiastes 6:8 KJV

    Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

    For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. Isaiah 26:20-21 KJV

    The Lord WILL punish ALL sin, wickedness, blasphemy, abominations. We must pray for those committing such evil to repent and be TRULY saved. We also must pray for ourselves AND REPENT, CONFESS our sins to Jesus, beg His FORGIVENESS, be TRULY SAVED, OBEY HIM, and ENDURE to the end in Him, NEVER WAVERING.

    I must confess that I am having difficulty living in this world. I feel many times like the man of God who was hiding in a cave thousands of years ago from Jezebel who wanted to kill him. She had already killed all the Lords faithful. He was sure that he was the only one left who loved and obeyed God, but God told him that He still had (I think it was 7,000) faithful in hiding. Before God told him that, he was intentionally starving himself to death due to recent events throwing him into a deep depression. Until God encouraged and reassured him, he did not want to live anymore. Please forgive me, I don't remember where in the Old Testament it is. If you type in your browser "Who was the prophet that hid in a cave from Jezebel?" it should come up.


  • Mishae - in Reply on Matthew 27
    Go to the search box and type: Jezebel.

    It will bring up all verses that record her acts and what happened when God sent Elijah to confront her.
