    we cave into mortal ideas and then we open a door for the devil to come in, we are now seeing the evil at work but the good thing is we have a Father who loves us, and if we would humble ourselves with humility, and give thanks to Him for he works all things for the good, repent of our sins, He will hear us and answer our prayers, kneel down and pray, and if He is your Lord God Almighty, He will never leave you nor forsake you, trust in Him, He fights our battles, this is a wake up call. Our God is more powerful then he who is in the world, no evil can remove Him who dwells in us, He walks with us. Fear not for He overcame the world and so shall we. He gave us His peace, believe have faith

    does the bible say, it will be as hard for a rich man to get to heaven as it is for a camel to get through the eye of a needle
  • Mickey
    Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25 are the scriptures about the eye of a needle. In ancient times the big doors of a city was locked at night. People parked their camels outside and entered the city through a small door; known as the eye of a needle
    Jesus was saying it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. I guess love of money is a problem.
  • Adam
    This story has been circulating for decades and I heard it is false- that it was invented by rich people so they feel better about being wealthy and entering heaven. Only God is the judge. It clearly says loving money is the sin- probably the sin of idolatry.
  • Bob Hilt
    Matthew 19:24 And again I (Jesus) say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Mark 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
    Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
  • Mickey
    You can find the "Eye Of A Needle" scripture in these books: Matthew 19:24, Mark 10-25 and Luke 18:25.
    Read down to them because the incident begins before Jesus says the verse.
  • Linda Garcia
    When Jesus died and rose again didn't he provide in the new covenant that we are no longer going to be punished for the sins of the father like in the old testament. Please explain
  • Mickey
    At the top of this website is a box you can use to find all scriptures in the Bible about the Holy Spirit; why Jesus wanted us to be sealed with the Holy Spirit. He is the Spirit of Jesus, on earth, helping us read the Bible, revealing Jesus to us,
    Teaching, Comforting, convicting us about sinful attitudes, and so much more. Do that search and find what so many of us are looking for>>>more Light.
    After I was saved I didn't know zip about the Holy Spirit; but He was in me helping a baby Christian walk forward with my Lord and Savior. If you're not sure the Holy Spirit is with you, receive Jesus and ask to be baptized into the Holy Spirit. He is gentle and always reveals Jesus. Trust Jesus

    Was there a medallion that allowed communication with Archangels

    What does the Bible say about worldly virus's that are deadly and an Epeidemic world wide?
  • Bob Hilt
    Do not fall for the mandela effect as the Bibles
    were not changed. if satan was able to go back
    in time and change the Bible, then that means
    he would be more powerful than the Lord God
    of the Bible. Must be you remember a pastor
    using a non king james version for the Lion
    instead of wolf.
    Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the
    lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the
    kid; and the calf and the young lion and the
    fatling together; and a little child shall lead
    them.
    God promised to PRESERVE his words and if
    things were changed, then He failed.
    The "lion shall lay down with the lamb" is a lyric
    made popular by the 1937 song, "Peace in the
    Valley"
  • Bob Hilt
    Lion with lamb was a song
    It was first made popular by Red Foley and the
    Sunshine Boys in 1951 after being recorded by
    Sam Cooke of the Soul Stirrers in 1950 and
    rising to limited success. But it wasn't until Elvis
    Presley recorded the song on his first
    Christmas Album with the Jordanaires that
    "Peace in the Valley" received worldwide fame.
    On January 6, 1957, Elvis sang "Peace in the
    Valley" on the Ed Sullivan Show,
    After the popularity of Elvis' rendition of the
    song, many ministers around the nation began
    integrating the lyrics into their sermons.
    that is what people remember not changed Bibles.
    Satan does not have a time machine that God can not stop
  • Dolores Rooda for verse 7
    Thank you for the comments, It is so comforting to know that God has a plan and knows the beginning to the end. Another passage is Psalms 91. Yours in Christ.
  • Brenda for verse 7
    Thank you
  • Harold Robinson
    All Praises belongs to God, for He is Worthy to be Praised. When we stop and Thank God for what He has already done in our lives. Then we want have time to complain about things, that we don't have. Each and Every day. God open up my eyes and start me on own my way. I say Thank-you God, for giving me a little bit more time on earth. Time isn't nothing, if you don't value it properly. May the peace of God be with you and most of All In You..
  • David Orren
    I agree.. humility and the ability to be grateful is so important. But grateful to whom? There are so many working hard right now to support people through the Corona Virus.

    If God created all things, why did he create the Corona Virus? Who should we be grateful to? The one who created the problem? Or the people who are trying to help get us out of this predicament?

    Or did God just make a big mistake this time?
  • Saimone
    God has never made a mistake....we humans make mistake and have to face the consequence of it all. God will always intervene if we ask him to.
  • David Orren
    I do think the Tsunami was a bit of a mistake.. don't you think?

    And what about the Corona Virus?

    And the way that the Church has consistently covered up child abuse? And gotten away with it!

    If God had done all those things on purpose.. well... that would be very hard to forgive. My guess is that God is not bad, he just does take his eye off the ball sometimes. Means we need to learn to think more for ourselves and learn judgement and common sense. I think that is what a good God would want.
  • T Bone
    Hello, it sounds like you believe God exists, but somehow assume he's supposed to micromanage everything, and somehow assume you're entitled to Him serving you, as if he's a genie in a bottle? You're lucky you even exist, God didn't have to create you. Look at your heart- absolutely nothing causes it to beat currently, but it does. You could call that a miracle you're even alive. Also He didn't have to give you freewill, but did. You could have been a mindless puppet, but you're not. So, you can use that freewill to slander Him all you want, but that's not going to increase your rewards in the afterlife if you're looking for comfort. No one is entitled to anything.
  • David Orren
    Hi T-Bone,

    The Tsunami Covid19 are pretty big... not really micromanagement.

    I feel very privileged to be on this planet and am grateful for everything I have and for the people around me. I want friends who are generous with each other because that is the right thing to do, and because they feel good doing that. Not because they are afraid or are trying to get something in return.

    Why are Christians continually afraid and feel they deserve to be continually punished?

    Most people will do the right thing if they have enough choice to do so. Only a few will only do the right thing out of fear. Do you feel you have to behave properly, out of fear, and in order to get something?
  • David Orren
    Why do we deserve nothing? My children deserve to live in a safe and enjoyable world and I have the power to help that to happen, so I hold myself accountable for doing everything I can to make that happen.

    Many Christinas believe God has All Power. Is he not accountable to do everything he can?

    So why did he create the Corona Virus? Should we not hold him accountable?
  • David
    Should we thank God for the Corona Virus?
  • Adam
    Why? Do you blame God for all bad things and praise someone else for all good things? Is that rational? What if God gave man freewill and man chooses evil sometimes, is that still God's fault?
  • David Orren
    How is Corona Virus NOT a product of God's work?
  • Adam
    If it's bioterrorism or something man prepared in a laboratory then it would be man-caused. But let's say it's mostly natural like other viruses or diseases, does that automatically mean you should blame God? This is a cursed and fallen world because of the original sin Genesis 3:13-19 and natural disasters are since allowed to happen. Everyone is going to die from Earth then have an opportunity to spend eternity in heaven or hell. Jesus died for you so you can be forgiven and spend an eternity in paradise if you accept his gift.
  • David Orren
    Christians say that God created all things. Christians celebrate that God created all the beautiful natural things. Then who created all the bad natural things?

    And I am wondering what it is that I did in the first place? I cannot blame my children for the sins I may have committed. That would be unreasonable of me. I need to be accountable for what I do. . So why would you - or God - blame me for the sins that Adam committed?
  • Adam
    >So why would you - or God - blame me for the sins that Adam committed?

    Hi David, do you feel that someone is blaming you for Adam's sins? Who? I don't know of anyone being blamed for that. Did you read the previous verse shared? It explains what happened after Adam and Eve sinned- the world was cursed in a sense. This explains natural things people consider bad. Also keep in mind that satan is considered god of this world and allowed to roam, deceive, and possibly even afflict people physically: 2 Corinthians 4:4, 2 Corinthians 12:7. God allows things to happen and we sometimes sustain collateral damage from others or the natural environment. This world is very temporary for everyone.
  • David Orren
    Adam says that 'Jesus died for you so you can be forgiven and spend an eternity in paradise if you accept his gift.'
    Why do I need to be forgiven? For what?!

    This suggest that I am guilty of something. What exactly?

    You say that God is all powerful. That he created the heavens and the earth. So God has created the Coronavirus.

    Why do Christians not hold him accountable for this? If he were a man, he would go to prison for spreading Bioterrorism. Why don't Christians hold him accountable?

    Why instead do Christians assume PEOPLE are guilty about something for which we need forgiveness? Why do Christians flip reality and ignore the enormous suffering he has caused?

    My friend, come now, let us reason together, saith the Lord. For God is not willing that any should perish, Matthew 18:11, John 3:16 Of his Son it is said the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised," "To preach the acceptable year of the Lord." The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9; Luke 4:18
