    John the Beloved. He also penned Revelation 123 John
  • Mickey
    John the Revelator who was on the island of Patmos. I John thru III John. Great books to read now.
  • PC
    See John 9:1-3. Christ Jesus answers this question here. See John 14:12. The "works" spoken here are demonstrations of healing done with Love and Truth through Spirit. He never used anything when he healed but God's power. If you are a believer, than you are Christ Jesus' disciple too, also written in the Scriptures. Romans chapter 8 is helpful. The Bible uses symbols so everyone can understand it from different languages at their own pace. The Christ viewed man with Love, he saw no imperfection in them. He saw man as in Genesis 1:26. God is Love, good. There is no fear. I hope this answers your question.

    is there a unforgivable sin
  • Adam
    The Bible says blasphemy against the holy ghost is unforgivable. Matthew 12:31-32 and Luke 12:10. Presumably everything else can be forgivable, even killing, as that's that Paul did, for example.
  • Bob Chambers
    The unforgivable is simple, not accepting Christ. All others are washed in the Blood of the Lamb. The Great I AM.
  • Mickey
    LYNN: 2 Corinthians 8 (1-10)
    Absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. It needs to be read in context.
  • Mickey
    I will go back and find Lynn.
  • Adam
    Hi Mickey, yes, context does matter. It sounds like you're referring to 2 Corinthians 5:8 in which Paul says he would 'willing rather' or would rather... be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. He didn't say that everyone upon death is instantly with the Lord and skips judgment or that the dead don't rise to meet Jesus in the clouds. Instead he said would 'rather' be with the Lord. Other verses that say that we will each first face a day of Judgment. 1 Corinthians 4:5 says Jesus will come, then everyone will be judged upon the judgment seat of Christ 2 Corinthians 5:10, and dead will rise to meet the Lord 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
  • Mickey
    I'd have to look up some stuff first. Christians face the Bema Seat. We've already been judged. Jesus is our Advocate. Dead to sin, Alive in Christ.
  • DAN
    absent from the body, present with the lord is a fact. Hebrews 9:27-28 King James Version (KJV) 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: there is no scripture to indicate we go anywhere but to Jesus.
  • Mickey
    I don't really remember that conversation. Looks like two different comments. I'll watch that. Sorry.
  • Judy Thomas
    Will animals be in heaven?
  • Stanjett
    Animals didn't sin. I think they all go to heaven.
  • DAN
    Hi Judy; yes, there are animals in heaven; Revelation 19:11-14

    And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. If there is one, theres is more.
  • Bob Hilt
    Yes animals will be in the kingdom
    Isaiah Chapter 11

    4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

    5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, ...

    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.

    7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
    until you see Lions eat stray you know this is future
  • Tim
    Animals are in heaven.
  • Erica tirado
    I'm lost and trying to understand his word. please help.
  • Wolfen244
    Erica Tirado, Read and understand the promise @ Revelation 3:20. This has NOTHING to do with being saved. Instead it has everything to do with your own personal Temple of the Living God - your body. Your body is the real temple. God Almighty in heaven is right outside your temple and is knocking at the "door" to your temple. Ask Him to come into your temple and He promises to "sup" with you - and you with Him. That is heavyweight!! Before you do realize it isn't Joe Sixpack down the road. You are inviting The Lord God Almighty who throws gas balls around the Universe. So make your temple circumspect before the Lord then invite Him in and you both sup with each other. Trust me.
  • DAN
    Mr. Wolfen, in my response to Erica, I mentioned Jesus standing at a door with no handle. YOU must invite Him in. If you open the door, (get saved), you invite Him in. The Holy Spirit is knocking on the door of your heart. If you do not open the door and let Jesus in (GET SAVED), you CAN NOT sup with Him. Once you have accepted Him, (let Him in), the door will never close.

    Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

    Yes Mr. Wolfen, this verse, (Revelation 3:20) is referring to being saved. If YOU never open the door to your heart, (get saved) Jesus will NEVER be able to sup with you.
  • Angie
    Erica, have you ask Jesus to be in your heart? HE is the only one who can help you understand. The minute you ask Him, He will open your eyes. How? He will send the Holy Spirit to help you.
  • DAN
    ANGIE; before I accepted Jesus and made Him Lord of my life, the bible, to me, was like a strange language. The very minute I accepted Jesus His word became readable to me. Do not give in to satan. Jesus will open your eyes.
  • DAN
    dear erica, Jesus knows your heart. He is knocking on the door of your heart. YOU MUST open the door of your heart for Him to enter. I saw a picture a while ago. Jesus was standing outside a door knocking. If one looked close, one would notice the door had NO handle to open it with. When you accept Jesus into your heart, you open the door to your heart from the inside. Once you have accepted Jesus into your heart the WORD (the bible), will become clear.

    2 Timothy 2:15 King James Version (KJV) 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. King James Version (KJV) your friend in Christ Dan

    v8 refers to God upon the throne - the Subject of the Book of Revelation, as the Authority of the Godhead for Salvation and Judgment. In this Book He is always referred to as He which is, which was and which is to come, as in v4. It is v11 that refers to the Lord Jesus Christ - equal with God on the Throne but has submitted Himself to being the Lamb (28 times in Revelation!!). verses 8 and 11 "I am Alpha and Omega" show clearly They are Equal, but with different functions for the Salvation of fallen mankind. Sorry to see this excellent website fall for this very common, but easily avoided mistake if the Scriptures are read properly!!
  • Sue
    Question? Why are babies born with birthdefects
  • Stanjett
    I would like to know also. I will add that to my question list for when I meet Him face to face.
  • Fred Scanlan
    This would be a plea for all the churches that are in Christ. Come to Christ today, these would be the days.The redemption that is found in the shed blood of our Lord and Savior. If you are reading these words today, you are indeed blessed to know that he comes for his church, if you believe and are baptized you will be a part of it. I plead with the world that prayer and supplications be made for all mankind 1 timothy 2:1 This we should do considering the times that are upon us.God bless us o lord and forgive us our sins for Christs sake.
  • Julie
    Bless your Word oh Mighty One.
  • Gary Main
    The Word Of God was meant for a Spiritual mind to understand. This makes sense, Spiritual sense, if the ones who penned the Word of God, Penned it under the divine inspiration and Spirit of God, those who understand it must be influenced by that same inspiration and Spirit?
  • Timothy Sutherland
    I agree 100 . Without God's Spirit, you cannot comprehend it. 1st Corithians 2:14. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discern ed.
