  • Victor for verse 29
    what does it mean: "They have their reward."

    it repeats three times.
  • Jesse for verse 29
    Victor,

    Jesus says in Matthew 6:2, Verily I say unto you, "They have their reward." Matthew 6:1-4 talks about doing righteousness before men to be seen of men. Jesus said in Verse 1, "Take heed," which literally means pay attention. Pay attention that you do not your alms, and the Greek word for alms is acts of mercy. And then it says "before men." You see, it is external to be seen of them. It goes on to say "Otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven."

    So Jesus says to pay attention and don't do your righteousness so that people can see you. It is not for external show! This is for your God who lives inside of you. He is inside, and you don't need to show anybody out here if you are worshiping the Lord or you are doing something under the inspiration of His Spirit. You don't need to have people see you, because it is for Him, and it is from Him. He says if you do, there is no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

    When we are led by God's Spirit to do something good, we should not seek for recognition from men. If we do, and we are rewarded here on this earth, we will not receive a reward for it later. This does not mean that if someone thanks you for doing something good for them that you will lose your reward later. It's the motive behind it. Did you do something good to be seen of men and seek for recognition from men? If that is your motive, Jesus says your Father in heaven will not reward you later.
  • Victor for verse 29
    so they have their reward from men, not Father in heaven.

    in another words, Matthew 6:22 "No man can serve two masters", if we have reward from human, there will be no reward from Father?
  • Mary Jane Humes for verse 29
    Victor, what this means is that a person cannot server both God and mammon. It is not wrong to make money but when you wan to serve money, and it becomes your master then you cannot serve God also.
  • Bob Hilt for verse 29
    Greetings Victor, there are two types of rewards. one for the righteous and another for the unrighteous.

    2 Peter 2:13 And shall receive the REWARD reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

    Writing of Judas Acts 1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. (his pieces of silver for betraying Christ)

    2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

    This is not a good reward.

    Then there are the rewards for the just in faith.

    Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Revelation 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

    Jesus speaks in Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
  • Curtis brummett for verse 29
    what passage gives the complete gospel in two verses
  • Jesse for verse 29
    I would say that Paul pretty much sums it all up in 1 Corinthians Chapter 15 Verses 3 and 4.
  • John 3:16 might be what you have in mind.

    Mark 12:30-31 - Are the greatest 2 commandments in case you mean that.
  • Curtis brummett for verse 29
    thank you for your reply and your answer is correct, but it took me a little less time to remember and read it again. I am getting old so it take longer to remember. But thank you very much for being so kind as to help me. I like your question and answer so I might do this again if it is alright with you. GOD Bless and keep you (LOOK UP) HE could come today.
  • I 17 (11-7)

    Par quarante ans l'iris n'apparoistra.

    Par quarante ans tous les iours fera veu La terre aride en siccite croistra

    Et grands deluges quand sera apperceu.

    For forty years the rainbow will not be seen. (1958-1998) For forty years it will be seen every day. The dry earth will grow more parched, and there will be great floods when it is seen.
  • V 53 (58)

    La loy de Sol, & Venus contendans, Appropriant l'esprit de prophetie :

    Ne l'vn ne l'autre ne seront entendans, Par Sol tiendra la loy du grand Messie.

    The law of the Sun and of Venus in strife, Appropriating the spirit of prophecy:

    Neither the one nor the other will be understood,

    The law of the great Messiah will hold through the Sun.

    The word "egregore" (also "grigori") is a transliteration of the Greek word, egregoroi, meaning "watchers". This word appears in the septuagint translation of the Book of Lamentations, as well as the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch.

    Therefore an egregore is an angel, sometimes called watcher; in Hebrew the word is ir, and the concept appears in The Book of Enoch. Thus, Irim, the city of the Nephilim is again linked with the Book of Enoch, since the Nephilim, according to that Book, were the sons of the Irim (the egregores.). .Although the Irim, the egregores, are angels on both sides of the camp - fallen angels as well as faithful ones.

    The exact date of Gregory's birth is uncertain, but is usually estimated to be around the year 540, in the city of Rome. His parents named him Gregorius, which according to lfric of Abingdon in An Homily on the Birth-Day of S. Gregory, "... is a Greek Name ], which signifies in the Latin Tongue, Vigilantius, that is in English, Watchful...."The medieval writer who provided this etymology did not hesitate to apply it to the life of Gregory. lfric states, "He was very diligent in God's Commandments."

  • Byblos appears as Kebny () in Egyptian hieroglyphic records going back to the 4th-

    dynasty pharaoh Sneferu (fl. 2600 BC)[6] and as Gubla () in the Akkadian cuneiform Amarna letters to the 18th-dynasty pharaohs Amenhotep III and IV. In the 1st millennium BC, its name appeared in Phoenician and Punic inscriptions as Gebal (, gbl); in the Hebrew Bible as Geval (); and in Syriac as gbl(). The name seems to derive from gb (, "well") and l (, "god"), the latter a word that could variously refer to any of the Canaanite gods or to their leader in particular. The name thus seems to have meant the "Well" or "Source of the God".

    Its present Arabic name Jibayl () or Jbeil ( [bejl]) is a direct descendant of these earlier names, although apparently modified by a misunderstanding of the name as the triliteral root gbl or jbl, meaning "mountain". During the Crusades, this name appeared in European records as Gibelet and Giblet. This name was used for Byblos Castle and its associated lordship. The Phoenician city, known to the Greeks as Bblos () and to the Romans as Byblus, was important for their import of papyrus from Egypt.The English word "Bible", ultimately deriving from the Greek words bblos () and biblon(),
  • Iris

    C1:Q17

    Par quarante ans tous les iours sera veu: La terre aride en siccit croistra,

    Et grands deloges quand sera apperceu.

    For forty years the rainbow will not be seen. For forty years it will be seen every day.

    The dry earth will grow more parched,

    and there will be great floods when it is seen.

    Iris is a genus of 260-300 species of flowering plants with showy flowers. It takes its name from

    the Greek word for a rainbow, which is also the name for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Iris. Some authors state that the name refers to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many

    species. As well as being the scientific name, iris is also widely used as a common name for

    all Iris species, as well as some belonging to other closely related genera. A common name for some species is 'flags', while the plants of the subgenus Scorpiris are widely known as 'junos', particularly

    in horticulture. It is a popular garden flower.

    Etymology

    From Middle English ], from Latin ris, from Ancient Greek (ris, "rainbow") From Old Irish ires, iress ("religion, creed, the (true) faith").

    Noun

    iris (genitive singular irise)

    This idea is actually based on a Midrash on the pasuk, "She will dwell there as in the days of her youth, and as on the day of her ascent from the land of Egypt." (Hoshea 2:17).
  • Ezekiel 4:4

    1
    Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and pourtray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:

    2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about.

    3 Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel.

    4 Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity.

    5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.

    6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.

    7 Therefore thou shalt set thy face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and thine arm shall be uncovered, and thou shalt prophesy against it.

    The day-year principle, year-day principle or year-for-a-day principle is a method of interpretation of Bible prophecy in which the word day in prophecy is considered to be symbolic of a year of actual time. It is used principally by the historicist school of prophetic interpretation.

    It is held by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Jehovah's Witnesses, some Pentecostals and the Christadelphians. The day-year principle is also used by the Baha'i Faith, as well as in astrological prediction techniques, otherwise known as "primary directions

    When you confess Him and you receive his body and blood in faith, your sins are washed away and you are a born again child of God! We In fact are redeemed from sin and death, Christ having become our sacrifice, while fulfilling all righteousness .Our atonement for sin,our "Passover lamb". You need only to believe. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Behold I stand at the door and knock. Open your heart and let him abide. Trust in Him and lean not unto your own understanding! All your ways acknowledge HIM! Salvation is yours, and fades not away, it is kept for you! These promises of salvation are sealed,with his BLOOD! Receive HIM today
  • Dennis Harvey
    Fred e Scanlan

    Your sins are not washed by confessing and having faith in Jesus. You receive the remission of your sins when you obey Acts 2:38 read it. Maybe you should read the whole book of acts and see what the Apostles taught as instructed by the Lord Jesus
  • Bob Hilt
    Dennis: this is what the scriptures say about REMISSION of sins.

    Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

    Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

    Luke 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

    Luke 3:3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

    Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    Acts 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

    Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

    Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
  • Fred scanlan
    Acts 2;21 Whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Peter 3;18For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: Peter 3;21The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ The kjv uses the word also, a word that takes us back to the old test. Thank you for pointing these things out!
  • Fred scanlan
    You are correct! If I have a friend,who is dieing or come upon an accident and there is someone breathing their last breath, shall not their confession of Jesus Christ be enough to take them too heaven? That whosoever believeth on His name shall be saved!My comment was referring to the sacrificial atonement through animal sacrifice. This act provided a temp.cleansing until the next time of the same sacrifice. Baptism is a commandment of Christ, which in effect is the fulfilling of the law. Our confession is what saves us! The sacraments do not save us. CIRCUMCISION IS OF THE HEART! Loving Christ with every living part of your body and soul is what saves us! When you kneel before this gracious forgiving God and confess your sins,He is faithful and just to forgive us. It is interesting that Peter uses the example of Noah in the verse before to illustrate what baptism is. The law and the gospel always exalt one another. I think I would prefer to use this chapter of Peter, to understand what baptism does. Being put to death in the flesh but quickened in the spirit! I love Peters words, He has a clear understanding of both.

    As with Peter, he walked on water, as long as he looked upon the Lord. But he took his eyes off the Lord and failed in himself. If we take our eyes off the Lord, we will also fail. Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
  • Im the Message to the screener poster Part I of II
    Prayer for Serenity
    God, grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change,
    the courage to change the things I can,
    and the wisdom to know the difference.
    Living one day at a time,
    enjoying one moment at a time;
    accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
    taking, as Jesus did,
    this sinful world as it is,
    not as I would have it;
    trusting that You will make all things right
    if I surrender to Your will;
    so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
    and supremely happy with You forever in the next.

  • Im the Message to the screener poster Part I of II
    Ironically, the 1st thing you posted, my original comment helped me just now, because I'm thinking about what may be to come & how I can be "founded upon a Rock," because I don't have His fortitude of scripture needed to be strong enough to lift (accept gracefully/humbly as a Christ did HIS weight/burden/cross) such weights as previous and current Christian (teammates/family members/siblings) have and currently ARE ALREADY lifting/have lifted. I came back to say you can post all of the "message to the screener" if it will profit (I only said "don't" to indicate it was just to the screener to explain my earlier mess(age) (lol). But yeah, I came back because I wanted to post the following:
  • Message to the screener ONLY PLEASE do NOT POST thanks Part V LAST THANKS
    And children WILL (as in the days of Genesis) CONTINUE to suffer things that I can't even comprehend, and will CONTINUE to suffer in open secret. Things WILL be BAD for some, and UNIMAGINABLE for others. I have had anger toward God because I didn't like that He doesn't appear to will me fight to CHANGE things (to make tHIS WORLD a better place for the children and young people and the most vulnerable populations). I didn't/don't understand God's ways, which is fine, but not accepting His will, is for those who won't BE accepted into HIS HOLY...Heaven(ly) House and HIS kingdom in heaven. Christ helped me tonight, I'd erred a semantically, but His intent was to fix my err in spirit/heart/will
  • Message to the screener ONLY PLEASE do NOT POST thanks Part IV
    ...but tonight, Christ's Father willed for Christ to open up my heart to accept it, and He gave me wisdom through SEEING what He DID...Himself, though I've intellectually known ALL of this since childhood, basically, and it's been the thing God has made KNOWN to me since I was LITERALLY a SMALL child (that I feared God's will of persecution for my personal life). God chose some things for some people that are different than what He chose for the majority around said "some people." Like in Zephaniah 3:12. No matter WHAT a person does, GOD's will is the ONLY will FOR that person! And God doesn't always reveal things, so people WILL "friend of Job" and understandably disobey Matthew 7:1-5

    Only one way to get there, and that's God's way or the highway! I wanted the ring and to attend the (Heavenly, eternal) Championship victory celebration in the end, with my teammates, but I wanted to DIRECT GOD in where to put me. I feared the position He'd put past teammates in (the persecution of the prophets that came before us and the affliction of current and FUTURE church that is going on right now, and will until Coach/Referee/Team Owner GOD blows the game-ending whistle.
