    Numbers 23:19 prevents an heart attack in me every time the evil one hurls his spear of the fear of death at me, for God has promised me long life and welbeing in Ephessians 6:1-3.

    This verse puts God ahead of every creation in this world and God s faithfulness to accomplish what He speaks into our life When He through genuine men of God speaks prophecies into our lives no matter what He will cause it to be accomplished because of His FAITHFULNESS His Faithfulness makes Him to be honest truthful and loyal to what He speaks into our life Whatever He has said about you believe it and it shall surely come to pass

  • Jesus' Follower on Numbers 23:19
    Jesus said, 'Hear O Israel, The Lord, your Lord, our God is one. You shall love him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.' [Gospel Of Mark Chapter 12, verse 29-31]

    "Jesus said, 'O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, My Lord and your Lord. '" [Qur'an Chapter 5, verse 72]

    "Jesus said, 'Surely, Allah is my Lord and your Lord; so serve Him, that is the straight path.'" {Quran Chapter 3, verse 51]
  • Opokou on Numbers 23:19
    This is a very straight verse, for sure God is not a liar, what He says He'll accomplish He will.
  • C Edwards on Numbers 23:19
    John 1 says, In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. John 1:14 continues in saying "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
    Listen, all that worship Jesus must worship him in spirit and in truth. If God says it, it's done.
    And for Allah's comment concerning, where is the Trinity, read Matthew 28:19, Trinity means 3, Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. The word "Bible" doesn't appear in the Bible either, but the Word of God(the Bible)is the number one best seller in the world. Study to show thyself approved and may God bless you all!
