  • Teletrice brantley for verse 1
    thanks alot
  • Why did God not respect the offering of Cain?
  • Mishael on Cains Curse Genesis 4 5 for verse 1
    Cain was firstborn but God rejected Cains offering. Maybe it was substandard?

    Abel was 2nd born and God was pleased with his offering and blessed him.

    Cain was indignant and disputed the event. God didn't change His mind.

    Cain slew Abel. He was cursed and marked for death. Later he married and had children.

    Eventually Lamech was born. By accident He slew Cain and lived long enough to survive the 70 times 7 times curse for killing Cain. He survived and later Noah would be born. Genesis 4:23

    Then Eve's 3rd born son, Seth, lived 912 years.
  • Hello Mishael, I'm not seeing where it says Lamech killed Cain. Genesis 4:23 says he killed a man, but it doesn't say who. It says it could be a young boy, if it was a young boy, then that eliminates Cain as a possibility, since Cain was older than Lamech. Otherwise, if it was a man and a boy- two people he killed- we still don't know who, unless it says somewhere else?
  • Mishael on Cains Death for verse 1
    I already posted the reply. Why else would what Lamech confessed to, be followed up with mention of Cains curse

    If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech, seventy and seven fold.

    Who knows IF Cain knew whoever killed him was going to suffer 70 times 7 years. That's hatred.

    Cains daughter gave birth to Lamech. Cain beat up his Grandson.

    Sounds like year 2020 huh?

    That question has been on that page a couple of days. I did my best.
  • Mishael for verse 1
    Real sorry. My finger gets Fat at night.

    Verse 4:15-16 and 23-24
  • Mishael for verse 1
    Sorry, it's verse 15; 23-24. Center column says, for wounding and bruising me.

    There's a similar judgment in Ezekiel 9:4-6

    It's not described as a murder; it describes a fight.
  • Michael for verse 1
    rebirth in bible is true or false
  • Mishael on a Happier Home for verse 1
    Born again is as rebirth. It means both again. I prefer how Jesus explains it.

    In John 3, Jesus is telling Nicodemus how to be born again, spiritually. When he speaks about the wind, He is describing the Holy Spirit.

    We can pray for the Holy Spirit to visit our loved ones, convict them of sin and woo them to salvation. Pray and ask; then thank God for the answer. Having done all: to stand in FAITH.... not doubt. You gotta beat the devils off of family so they can respond to offered salvation.

    An angel tells Daniel, that Michael the Archangel had to fight against a demon prince to help this messenger get to Daniel.

    Daniel chapter 10:10-21.

    What you pray for, give thanks daily. Keep loved ones covered in prayers forbidding demonic influence.

    And nope, we don't get to order Michael around. We can ask God to give us angelic assistance. You already have a ministering angel.

    Here is a tip: when someone speaks forth the scriptures in the home; sings praises to God or talks what Jesus did today... angels hear it and record It in the Book of Remembrance . Malachi 3:16

    It's inspiring!

    "Then they that feared (respect & honor) the Lord spoke often one to another, and the Lord HEARKENED, and HEARD it, and a book of Remembrance was written BEFORE HIM, for them that feared the Lord, and thought upon His Name!

    So see, we can change the whole atmosphere in our homes! No swearing, no yelling insults and retorts; no gossip about others. Converse reverently about Jesus and you will have angels over at your place every day! How hard is that?

    If they hear you thanking the Lord for healing... the oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness, salvation of loved ones etc...

    Your prayer and worship songs are being fast tracked right up front of Gods throne!!!

    Because Jesus sits at the right hand of God Almighty God of all there is! Jesus hears.

    Turn off Metallica and turn on Dion's Kingdom in the Streets cd. What's better than a happier home?
  • Chris for verse 1
    Michael, there was Jewish religious leader that asked a similar question to yours & you're probably aware of the story. His name was Nicodemus & he was confused when Jesus told him that he needed to be born again to see God's Kingdom (Read John 3:1-7). Nicodemus thought what Jesus meant by re-birth, was a second natural, physical birth, which of course, is laughable (as can be seen in verse 4). But Jesus then qualified his statement further, saying that a person must first be born physically (i.e. by water (v 5) which is the flesh (v 6)), and then secondly, to enter God's Kingdom, he must also be born spiritually (vv 5 & 6 again).

    So, Yes, re-birth by the Spirit, is true & that miracle can only take place when a person repents of his sin, humbles himself before God, & believes in the completed work of Jesus, accepting His death for him on the cross. There is no other way to receive new birth, though some have tried by leading a monastic lifestyle, self-improvement exercises & acts of piety, but all that serves is to bring on self-effort to attaining perfection (which will never happen) or trying to eliminate all their sin (which is impossible without a Perfect Sacrifice being made). So, I hope you can see that re-birth can only be an act by God upon a truly repentant person & not by man, and it is an act that isn't humanly understood, since the new birth takes place deep in one's life - in the spirit.
  • Mishael on strange fire for verse 1
    Reincarnation is a religion of the devil. He has a little shop of horrors where you buy in to strange religion. Many of these are explained in the Bible. Every false god brings in a lot of demons with them.

    Strange books in the home can attract demons. They look at all your reading material. Check out your hard drive...

    Salvation is not rebirth. It's NEW birth into Jesus Christ; and receiving the baptism only the Holy Spirit can perform. The only way you can grow up strong is to believe in the God of the Holy Bible.

    Satan desires to ascend and take over Gods throne. He tried twice: at Adam and Eve, also when he saw Jesus die on the Cross. Next time he will be thrown into hell.
  • Troy Umberger for verse 1
    What is a great dearest
  • Leaster busby for verse 1
    Proverbs 1: what dose it mean?
  • Chris for verse 1
    Leaster, the Book of Proverbs has generally been attributed to King Solomon (v1). The first seven verses speak about the purpose of this Book (to give forth wisdom, knowledge, understanding, etc.). Then from verse 8 onwards, Wisdom personified, speaks, giving instruction in various aspects of life & its experiences. As you read the Book, & you have questions in understanding verses, then present them here as someone may be able to guide you.
  • Ariana pratt
    I like to read the bible every now and then but it is the book of proverbs
  • KJV Soldier
    P.S. I use the KJV red letter addition
  • KJV Soldier
    It's good that u read every now and then but you should read it often and not just one book. Daily Bible reading is a Christians way of growth. Here are some scripture references for you to look up that talk about the pow of God's word and what it can do for you when you read them often; Joshua 1:8, Matthew 4:4, Psalms 119:97, 2 Timothy 2:15, 2 Timothy 3:14-17, Psalms 1:2-3, Acts 17:11, John 6:63, Hebrews 4:12, and Ephesians 6:17-20. May God work in your life and show you the importance of reading His word. God bless.
  • Natsiq Kango
    I would like to understand more of Proverb chapter 1, verse 17.
  • Chris
    Natsiq, the way I understand this part of Proverbs 1, is that firstly, a warning is given to not be swayed by evil intentioned people to join them in their crimes (v 10). Their enticement comes skilfully (vv 11-14). But Wisdom speaks to not walk with them to pursue evil (v 16) & then a truth is given in vv 17, 18: "Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird." This can be said in another easier way to understand: 'these wicked people are behaving foolishly, just as if a person trying to trap a bird sets out the trap (net) right in front of the bird. The bird who sees this trap is more wiser by not going near the trap than these wicked people who don't realize that they themselves will suffer in the end (getting caught in the net themselves), whether by the justice system & most certainly by God in judgement'.
  • Kevin Mack
    Gee, virse 19 describes the Democratic party, especially Nancy Pelosi . matter a fact the whole chapter describes the mental condition of those that hate God and his word. God please cleanse the United States of this attitude.
  • Tony R Perry
    yes sir, your correct
  • Obbie Beal
    Where applicable: referring to the people of verse 10-19 above. It appears their heart, mind, works, are almost identical to the 2-riders of the white and red horse found in opening of seal 1 and 2 of Revelation 6:1-4, because a sinful greed, working through the lust of the flesh, eye, proud of life, fueled both of these groups back then and also in 2020.
  • Hassan Abdulkadir
    I take this page to no the important of the proverbs meaning,
  • Harrison
    I agree with you
  • Rudy Morales
    Instructions shall be read when building what is unknown so that it is built properly as instructed. Every day we ask I AM for the right way and path
  • Akomaye
    Versus 24,as a Christian do we really focus and be patient with God as we claim to be and wait patiently for him.
  • Ruben Hartness
    yes--believe, trust, and obey His commandants. God is long suffering so you should be also. As the song says "we are patiently waiting for Jesus to come". He will only forsake you if you forsake Him but He will always take you back through repentance. To remind Him of His promises is to know what His promises are. Talk to Him--He listens.
  • Latonja littlejohn
    Proverbs one I think is for wisdom and knowledge and truth either you serve and love Satan or serve and love the Lord teaches us to abide in wisdom but as for me and my house I will serve the lord
  • Olanrewaju Babarinde
    We just have to fashion our lives in line with the Word of God. As long as we do that, we will live in the "Blessing". I see a similarity with Psalms 1. For God to help us to flourish and enjoy peace, we must reject the views and opinions of the wicked and check all our actions to ensure they are in tune with what the Word of God says.
