    Always rejoice in the lord
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Hello Betty-Ellen. Psalm 100, a Psalm of Praise by an unknown author, is his declaration of joy & praise as he comes before the LORD in worship. In verse 4, he speaks of entering the gates of the Tabernacle or Temple precinct with thanksgiving and also going further in to the open area in front of the Tabernacle/Temple (the court) with praise. Worship & praise are continually upon his lips as knows the significance of this holy place & where the High Priest meets with God each year.

    Today, those who are saved & in Christ, have bodies indwelled by the Spirit of God ( 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19), & this reminds us that no matter where we are or whatever situation we find ourselves in, we can always talk to God, listen to Him, be comforted by Him & to offer praise & thanksgiving to Him. Certainly, we can also rejoice when entering a Church building preparing ourselves for corporate learning & worship, but we have so much more than those in olden days, where worship of God is not confined in a set aside area, but in response to the Holy Spirit within us causing us to lift our hearts & voices to God always.
  • Betty-Ellen Crum on Psalms 100
    Does "in his courts" mean in his Church?
  • Jorge Castillo on Psalms 100
    This is only a truly praising of the Lord, and for people to acknowledge his majesty, give praise and honor to him who is our dearly God.
  • Alton Adkins - in Reply on Psalms 100
    This is talking about the Rapture of the Body of Christ.Search the bible and look up The Rapture and the Second coming.

    Brother Glenn:

    The wage of sin is death, the death of this body of flesh. Spiritual death is impossible because Spirit is IMMORTAL.

    God is SPIRIT.

    Ephesians 4:4 There is ONE BODY (CHRIST) and ONE SPIRIT (the FATHER) .....

    The angels are MINISTERING SPIRITS; if LUCIFER was an angel, then he CAN NOT be destroyed, you can't DESTROY SPIRIT. Physical FIRE does nothing to Spirit.

    Lazarus and the rich man is a PARABLE, not LITERAL.

    If we have to answer for our sins then CHRIST death was in vain.

    You are chastised for not believing (obeying) his words.

    Philippians 2:13 For it is GOD (SPIRIT) that WORKETH IN YOU both TO WILL and TO DO HIS good PLEASURE.

    When you ADD yourself into the equation it becomes the works of you hands, which is an IDOL.

    In that day they will say unto me, DID WE NOT, etc., etc. and he will say unto them, depart from me ye workers of iniquity.

    God uses his ministering spirits to be a LYING SPIRIT in MEN'S PROPHETS, ( 1 Kings 22:19-22) causing man TO DO HIS WILL.

    God is SOVEREIGN, his plan for creation to be ONE IN HIM; will not fail.

    1 Corinthians 15:28 And when ALL THINGS shall be subdued unto him (Christ), then shall the SON also himself be subject unto him (the Father) that put ALL THINGS UNDER HIM, that GOD (Spirit, Truth, Life) may be ALL IN ALL.

    Dear Glenn , I'm not sure if I understand you correctly when you say that no one has died . There are lots of scriptures I could ask you about , I will choose Ezekiel Ch 18 , what do you think it is about ? If death is not the cessation of life what is it ? If when we die we still live on in some form why would God say what He does in v23 and v32 of Ch 18 . I feel as if I am beeing brutal towards you and I'm sorry because that is not my intention . If we go to somewhere wonderfull after our physical bodies die why aren't Christians everywhere killing themselves so they can be in that wonderfull place ? As far as I'm aware the Bible does not say that suicide is a sin . Many Christians have extremely hard lives in very difficult and distressing circumstances , why aren't they killing themselves to get to that lovely place as soon as possible ? I am genuinely interested to know what you believe and why you believe it . I have noticed that a lot of people , not you or anyone on this site , family friends work colleagues etc are extremely offended at the thought of ceasing to exist ,people of other faiths etc prefer to believe that 'something ' happens to us or we go 'somewhere' . I honestly think this belief comes from human pride , our pride in our own selves and desire to be of some importance in some way to some one . We are grass . But for the love and grace of God in devising a perfect means of salvation and without Christ's love and obedience to God that's what we would always be , grass . Here today gone tomorrow . I am sorry if I have been rough on you , I don't mean to be , please don't take this as a personal attack because it isn't one I promise . I can only speak my beliefs .
  • Glenn - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Hi , good news is that, no one is dead as of now ( spiritual) an as we are taught, there is only one person sworn to death , an that's Lucifer as described in Ezekiel chapter 28 , course those fallen angels, are doomed for destruction, as described in Jude ,.. otherwise, all who have passed in flesh, are on one side of the gulf or the other, as described in the story of lazeris an the rich man,.. bottom line, no one is gone , or dead !!! An no one has stopped existing as of now ,.. that'll all be worked out by our Heavenly Father, on the great white throne judgement, after the millennium, an as described, judgement starts at the pulpit, so teachers , preachers , pastors, ANYONE who teaches Gods word, should be very cautious, for as described, you'll not only answer for your sins , but also for the ones you do taught !!! An that's a heavy burden, if you are not teaching correctly
  • English sacha - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Hi Leroy , the day-of Christ's return to earth is as close as the day of your death is to you . I believe that when I die I shall cease to exist until that moment when Christ returns to establish his Father's Kingdom on earth , I shall know nothing .When he returns I will be ressurected , called into his presence to be judged and the hopefully I will be permitted a place in his Father's Kingdom .
  • Leroy Ratliff Jr on Psalms 100
    The Bible has to fulfill it's according to God word, so why or so many preachers saying God could come back today, tomorrow, next week when the bible is not fulfill it self yet?
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Hi Sheila. It would be difficult to share on verse 4 only, without looking at the whole Psalm. So, I shall give some thoughts for you. The author of Psalm 100 is unknown, but it is a call for ALL to worship the LORD. The Psalmist is so full of praise & thanksgiving, that he longs for all the inhabitants of the Earth to worship the LORD (v1).

    He then adds in verse 3, to know that the LORD is (the One) God. Psalm 96:5: "For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens." That there can only be one True God for He is the One Who has created us, we are accounted as His very own - as a Shepherd Who owns, guards & nourishes His flock - He loves all His creation, even those who reject or deny Him - He gives blessing to each one ( Matthew 5:45: "(God) maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."). And a further reminder, that He created mankind & we are not "self-created" or from our vain imaginations, but that God is not only our Creator but our Sustainer & Provider.

    With that Truth in our hearts, why shouldn't all people respond with "thanksgiving, praise & blessing" to His Name (v 4), & especially to those to Whom He has revealed Himself (Israel) & to those of us, by virtue of His Son's Death & Resurrection & Gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Israel should have entered the Temple gates & courtyard with such joy & confidence in their Creator but sin hid God's Face from them ( Isaiah 59:2). Likewise, harbouring sin in our lives, will keep us from joy & confidence in the Lord & our praise might be only empty words habitually spoken. But when we come into the Holy Place (the place of His Presence, of joy & rest), we can be confident because of "having clean hands, and a pure heart" ( Psalm 24:4) & that because of Jesus' shed Blood for us ( Hebrews 10:19-22). We can praise Him from our hearts through words, music, testimony & witness ( Hebrews 13:15).

    (You can add to the above, as you're led).
  • Sheila on Psalms 100
    hello i have to preach tomorrow how can i preach verse four
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Psalms 100
    My brother Earl,

    Your belief is truly pure. Though I still cannot make that decision from the things in the Bible. Again, as God's ways and thoughts are so high above us I know I could be wrong. Ecclesiastes 11:5.

    With things like John 10:26 Jesus Christ telling people they are not of His sheep.

    Just going to focus on the one verse of 1 Corinthians 15:28. In that verse the word "all" is the Greek word "pas". Mostly it is translated as "all" thought this is not the best word for "every single one or the whole or completely". The Greek words better for that are "hapas" and "holos" for a couple.

    In the definition of "pas" it states " The words "world" and "all" are used in some seven or eight senses in Scripture, and it is very rarely the "all" means all persons, taken individually. The words are generally used to signify that Christ has redeemed some of all sorts-- some Jews, some Gentiles, some rich, some poor, and has not restricted His redemption to either Jew or Gentile ..."

    Now I won't go as far as to say your belief is incorrect as I perceive you more wise than I. Again there are other things that keep me to the "saved and unsaved" in the end.

    Like I stated before in that if all were to be saved in the end I really would see no real use of the Bible, following Christ, doing right or wrong, if in the end it doesn't matter. This also does not seem fair to all the people that may have been tortured or killed by someone(say Hitler) and He is to be saved and be with them for eternity.

    Sometimes being fair doesn't look like the nicest thing. To the wicked that is. Though God is fair. Ezekiel 18:20-32.

    God Bless you brother Earl.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Hello Earl,

    I guess simply I understand "the Day of the Lord" as being now. As in the term we have for AD after the year. This comes from the Latin words "Anno Domini" basically meaning "year of the Lord" as after the Lord Jesus Christ came to earth.

    In that I believe all have the chance and ability to come to Christ and be saved. Though many Scriptures point not all shall be saved in the end. The wheat shall be separated form the tares, the sheep from the goats, etc. Some make it to life eternal some to eternal damnation. Christ taught this many times so I really cant see it another way.

    As from other Scriptures in that in the end the righteous shall be separated from the wicked and never have to see them ever again. I don't see all going to the same place in the end.

    Like I stated before if that is what God want's of coarse that is what will happen. I don't wish bad on anyone even them which I would call my enemies. Though the only enemy I really have is satan, evil, sin, etc. The people who are following those things instead of God and Christ we are told it does not end well for them. Though I can't see Christ preaching these things for no reason.

    Thank you Earl.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Brother Richard, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Before we can truly start to understand the scriptures we have to first understand THE DAY OF THE LORD.

    Most look at God's word through natural eyes. A day to them is a period of 24 hours. In the world with no beginning and no end; time does't exist. One day is a thousand years; even this doesn't mean a ratio 1 to 1000.

    The old testament is full of prophecies about the DAY OF THE LORD; all these prophecies of that day (a day called TODAY) were fulfilled when John the Baptist came proclaiming the kingdom of God is at hand. That day of the Lord; a day called TODAY is still in existence 2000 years latter; called TODAY (if you hear my voice harden not your hearts). This ONE day shall continue as long as this age of the church last.

    THE DAY OF THE LORD is the day that it became possible to have CHRIST IN YOU. We don't know what hour we are in; this DAY OF THE LORD. But the prophecy in Zachariah says:

    Zachariah 14:6 And it shall come to pass IN THAT DAY, that the light (Christ is the light) shall not be clear, nor dark:

    Zachariah 14:7 But it shall be ONE day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it SHALL COME TO PASS, that at evening time IT SHALL BE LIGHT.

    Understanding this DAY OF THE LORD is necessary as we discuss Isaiah 66 and other scriptures.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Brother Richard, may the SPIRIT grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    YES I do believe that in the ages to come ALL WILL BE IN CHRIST.

    1 Corinthians 15:28 And when ALL THINGS shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject to him who put ALL THINGS under him, THAT GOD MAY BE ALL IN ALL.

    A good portion of the scriptures is prophecy; as is:

    Psalms 22:26 The meek shall eat (my flesh and drink my blood; which is the word of God) and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek(s) him (we praise him because he seeks us; we don't seek him), your heart shall live forever (eternal life being resurrected with him; Revelation 20:5-6).

    Psalms 22:27 ALL the ENDS OF THE WORLD SHALL REMEMBER AND TURN UNTO THE LORD: and ALL the kindreds of the nations SHALL WORSHIP BEFORE THEE.

    Psalms 22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD'S (accomplished at his death and resurrection; Revelation 11:15,): and he is the governor among the nations.

    Psalms 22:29 And they (firstborn, children of HIS resurrection) that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they (the ones not raised with him at HIS resurrection) that go down to the dust (awaiting the second resurrection) SHALL BOW BEFORE HIM: and NONE can keep alive his own soul.

    Psalms 22:30 A seed (firstborn) shall serve him; it (seed or the firstborn) shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation (the age of the firstborn or the age of the church).

    Psalms 22:31 They (Firstborn, Elect, Saints) shall come (in the next ages), and shall declare HIS righteousness unto a people (those raised in the second resurrection) THAT SHALL BE BORN, that HE hath done this.

    The shadow in the old testament is the feast of weeks (feast of firstfruits) and the feast of the ingathering (final harvest).
  • S Spencer on Luke 1210 on Psalms 100
    In regards to Luke 12:10. Everything we do we do by the Spirit, no man that has the spirit of God will blasphem the Holyspirit.

    God's kingdom will not if the Holyspirit blasphem itself!

    You see the notion here in Luke 11:17-18. But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them,

    ( Every kingdom ) divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

    If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

    What is the works and purpose of the Holyspirit?

    Here's a few:

    :He seals us.

    Ephesians 4:30. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

    If God seals us can we unsealed ourselves? If so what does a seal mean?

    He teaches us:

    1 Corinthians 2:13. WHICH THINGS ALSO WE SPEAK, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

    Would the Holyspirit teach man to blasphem the Holyspirit?

    1 John 2:27. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

    Anyone who thinks a Christian can blasphem the Holyspirit may not understand what blasphem the Holyspirit means.

    Now lets revisit Luke 12:10 and see who Jesus is talking to and who the warning goes out to.

    Luke 12:1 (KJV) In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the PHARISEES, which is hypocrisy.

    Chapter 11 the Lord is giving the woes to the Pharisees.

    Chapter 12 he's taking to the disciples about the leaven of the Pharisees.

    He's not warning the disciples of blasphemy of the Holyspirit. HE CHOSE THEM AND HE CAN KEEP THEM.
  • Carleton on Psalms 100
    Sorry to peek in before next week but I am wondering if God has drawn very, very close to someone on this site very recently. Stay encouraged and glory in the Cross!
  • Richard in Christ on Psalms 100
    As I am looking forward to a reply from Earl I want to make another post. No rush Earl you have stated your situation.

    As Adam has stated in another post I cannot see ALL being saved in the end as how many Scriptures there are about people going to eternal damnation or "Hell". Some can't see a loving God be like this to people for say only sinning in the span of their physical life. Though I don't think anyone can perceive how serious sin is to a Perfect, Pure, Almighty God. Also in that it is not the pleasure of God that any should perish. The Lord will not turn away any that truly come to Him. Then on the day of Judgement when the books are opened. People may be shown how many times in their lives God has tried to lead them to Salvation in Jesus Christ and repentance of sins. Maybe just repentance before the Lord came to earth. All up to Him as He is fair.

    So here are a couple more Scriptures I find that solidify this. Even at the end of Isaiah 66:23-24. Speaking of all flesh coming to worship Him though just the next verse it speaks of how bad it will be for those who are against Him. Daniel 12:2, Psalms 9:17, 2 Timothy 2:12, Hebrews 6:8, 1 Peter 4:17-19, 2 Peter 3:7. Our names written in Heaven which does not seem to be for all Luke 10:20.

    How Jesus Christ spake of a "Hell" and tried to warn people of it a lot. A place of "wailing and gnashing of teeth". Eternal punishment as those who are saved eternal life. The same Greek word used "aionios" for "everlasting or without beginning or end".

    The story of Lazarus and there being two places separate from each other after death. Luke 16:20-31.

    Weather it be sheol, hades, gehenna, tartarus, or just hell I want nothing to do with any of those places. I believe God loves us so much He sent us these warnings in that we do not have to go there. Though if any reject Him He will not force anyone to be with Him.

    A good saying. "If you are born twice(born again in the Spirit) you die once, born once die twice".

  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Psalms 100
    Hi Alfred,

    Just for a little reply to your question. The word LORD is the translation of the four Hebrew letters YHWH usually pronounced YaHWeH. In newer Hebrew JeHoVaH. The name of Almighty God translated to LORD over 6k times.

    As even the Hebrews were really unsure of exactly how to pronounce it. Not wanting to say it wrong because of how pure He is they usually just say HaShem which means "the name".

    The word God is the Hebrew word Elohiym which is a plural word used for diety or God. Translated over 2k times as God.

    As He has many names those are just a few.

    I hope that helps a little and if anything is off maybe someone else may chime in.

    God Bless.
  • Alfred Ola HAMMOND on Psalms 100
    In Ps.100 v 3 we see LORD and God. LORD is in capital letters while God is written with a capital g only. Why?

    Can I infer from Ps.100 v 3 that the word LORD has 'greater' meaning than the word God?

    Thanks.

    God bless you brother Mishael

    Your knowledge of Scripture is better than your knowledge of music. Mozart was not deaf. Beethoven was deaf. :-)

    Peace & Love in Christ
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 100
    The better question is: I have this talent and how can I lift up Jesus so all mankind can be drawn to Him.

    Let's not be undercover Christians anymore.

    When I listen to Mozart, I just wonder how God could bless anybody that is deaf with that kind of talent? Mind boggling.
  • Ologhobo stephen on Psalms 100
    it is GOD that created us 'all human' so we all have to follow his way....he's truth...
  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on Psalms 100:2
    Serve the Lord with gladness - It is your privilege and duty to be happy in your religious worship. The religion of the true God is intended to remove human misery, and to make mankind happy. He whom the religion of Christ has not made happy does not understand that religion, or does not make a proper use of it.
  • William Rathy on Psalms 100
    My years back in school age 6-7, every other day was my time to read a chapter as said. Psalms 100 still is my very true chapter of the Bible, some people just don't have the true meaning of GOD, in there hearts. People who have God in there sole & heart love him & fell the love of God. May God bless all who read this.
  • Patricia on Psalms 100
    It is possible that political corruption is going on in our country during this coronovirius scare say a prayer and remember God is Control.
