  • Calvin on Revelation 22:2
    If you read the Bible as a history book you will find out that the tree of Life is still on the Earth.Facts show that the tree of Life is in EDOM and that people have tried to touch the snow that surounds the Eastern Gate where the tree of life is .Think the Bible has been writen for Quite a ferw times and that the Book of enouch has the meaning of the Bible up to When Jesus was born then the Book of Enouch has refrances to the end of time like Revlations has .How maney pastors have removed books from the bible and never let them be tought to any human Being?.
  • Danae on Revelation 22:17
    Why did God give us a choice to accept or reject in Revelation 22:17, esp since He is sovereign?

    Is it because of his righteousness or because it is free?

    Thanks
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Revelation 22:17
    Danae, It is because ALL these people are written in the Lambs Book of Life,Revelation 21:27. The statement is not TO saved and unsaved people. Any text our of context, is a pretext.

  • Amber on Revelation 22:2
    hi i was wondering how do i teach people evolution is fake.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22:2
    Just to add to Steven's suggestion: the Site, 'Answers in Genesis' is also quite informative & even has a section for children dealing with this creation/evolution conundrum that they might be facing. With children, they generally readily accept teaching given to them & possibly asking questions later. However, if you're dealing with adults, then any argument 'for or against' will come down to its common denominator: if everything created by definition requires a creator, then who created God? Conversely, those who are proponents of the 'Big Bang' that brought into being the worlds & eventually living creatures/species, have to also support how any chemical, seismic, physical activity can occur without there already substance to cause that to happen - hence, the need for a creator of that 'substance'.

    Man can only look at the evidence before him & use his knowledge (& imagination) working backwards to support his belief of an evolutionary process for the animate & inanimate worlds. Believers in God's Word begin from the first declaration (by God), & then work forwards finding that what we see & know now, fully supports Who God is & what He has done. But if the discussion is purely on the evolution of man from primate to homo sapien, then you will need to go deeper into the biological & spiritual dimensions as well as the possibility/impossibility of creating something of a different species from an established one. That would require much more scientific investigation.

    HI Amber, Chuck Missler does a good job on that topic, "creation vs evolution".
  • R.P.Mai on Revelation 22:2
    Is it mention any where in the Bible how many nation's God created on the sixth day.
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 22:2
    Hi R. P Mai, I made a mistake in my typing, I meant to say I don't think you will find where God created any nations on the 6th day, but you will find where he created man on the 6th day in Genesis 1:26-31
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 22:2
    HI R.P. Mai. No I don't think you will find where God created any nations on the 6th day, but in Genesis 1:26-31.
  • Vito Longo on Revelation 22:18
    what did god say about he did not want man to be alone so he created woman
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    If you read verse 20 first, it makes better sense. Adam had not seen a suitable mate for him.
  • Timothy E Rathbun on Revelation 22:18
    Where in the bible talks about money issues or if you have books on the subject ?
  • Melvin on Revelation 22:18
    what is the power in fasting and praying?
  • STUDYING TO SHARE - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    I don't think that way. The Bible is not guilty of confusing or getting people off balance.

    This is Daniels age of information: Daniel 12:9-10. It is a mystery that is opening, NOW.

    I am not lecturing anyone specifically, ok? Most hindrances to Bible Study is NOT asking the Holy Spirit to HELP you to find your answers.

    I'm old, lol. I study every day. If it's a disease, I have it. It's personally rewarding and captivates me to dig even deeper to get at some truth. You need Bibles with study reference columns in the center of each page; you need a concordance; you need skill at Googling: Commentaries, History, Teachings, Maps and Genealogy Charts. I use everything.

    I watch very little TV. When it's quiet, I hear the leadings of the Holy Spirit much clearer. He is the most interesting Person I've ever known.

    You have many good questions. You're being called to Joel 2:28-29, 1 Corinthians 12. Galatians 3:25-28. You're blessed so keep studying, but remember to encourage yourself in Jesus. Sit in the sun, listen to some praise music, contemplate the weather that God moves around (Job). Smile at one person.

    In the 4 Gospels, 4 men, different occupations came to listen to Jesus. Jesus invited them to follow him. There's a prophesy in Psalms about Judas; who would betray Jesus. Mary Magdalene and other women who cooked & washed robes, etc, followed Jesus. Paul who was never married , had women that helped with various things. Thats where Googling skills come into play. Read a historians comments too.

    Jesus was a story teller which is something I love too. You have to know a story to tell it to the unsaved. My friends, we are ALL called to do the work of an evangelist. Some call it gift of gab, but I call it sharing a story, in the power of the Holy Spirit that brings the message of Christ to a heart ready to be planted by Gods Word. Plant, Water or reap harvest. (Matthew 10:27)

    A love gift to you: Malachi 3:16-18

    Praise God.

    You keep it up. The world needs Christians who won't give up and who will stand in the days of trial. The days of trial are coming.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    I doubt if it was ever God's intention to have all aspects of history, both personal & political history, be revealed in His Holy Word. What He has provided for us is for a reason & for a season, so the things that are revealed may be useful for our knowledge & manner of living here on Earth. We would certainly love to know much more, as you say, to fill in the "gaps", but that is not required for now. There is also a certain exercise of trust & expectancy that comes when we simply have to admit that we don't have all the answers to our questions, but that God has & His only expectation of us is that we learn & live according to His revealed Word. He won't accuse anyone for ignorance when the Word doesn't reveal more information to us, but we stand before Him if we fail to obey what He has asked of us. And I believe there's plenty in the Word of God for us to learn from, revise in our hearts & fulfil in our lives.

    And besides, is it even possible that everything be written about biblical people, places & events? Just of Jesus' Life, we read in John 21:25, "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written." How our hearts & minds yearn to know more about our Lord & Saviour, yet that earnest waiting & expectation can only grow in us as we await that great day when faith becomes sight & we behold the One Whom we love, but Who first loved us by giving us of Himself completely. The spirit of Word tells me that as we long to see Him & be with Him, is also Jesus' longing for His blood-bought bride to be at His Side throughout eternity. Let's not focus on what we might be missing out from the Word's 'limited history' revealed to us, but to delight in what God has chosen to show us now for our benefit, that also instils excitement of what is to come later, both in knowledge & experience.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    I believe, that a yearning heart to know the power of God, the Love of Jesus Christ is what the Lord wants from us. This is, what faith is! "To know Him is to love him". Sacrifice of yourself, the giving of yourself to him. Jesus says we are to be like children! Sometimes hard to do. I wonder if one can ever really no Him as he is! Could ever give that much of yourself. Luther spoke of these things, and always reaffirmed, salvation is without the works of the law! But, we are saved by His grace! Loving Him.
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    I think one day we will know all or capable of knowing all, we have been given an ernest of the spirit, 1st corinthians 13:9-12 says for now we know in part,and we prophesy in part. but when that which is perfect come that which is in part shall be done away. when i was a child, i spake as a child, i understood as a child, i thought as a child: but when i became a man, i put away childish things. for now we see through a glass, darkley; but then face to face: now i know in part; but then shall i know even as also i am known. i think god has equipt us enough in his word for this time down here on earth... and i dont think we loose any part of the stories in the bible with the different translations, god has spreaded his main msg precept upon precept, line upon line, a little here and a little there, you can tare a page out, over all it wouldnt change its main theme. the msg is intergrated, as we read with faith the holyspirit guide us to all truth.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    You have used the scripture well. Our flesh and the world, always tries and quell the spirit of God that lives within us. The love that we so dearly need is His spirit. We deceive ourselves when we live outside His spirit that is in Christ! The holy spirit uses the word charity, because it is the mobility , or the transfer, of so great love! It is no longer just noise! It is a living word.
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 22:18
    Thank you
  • Karenna on Revelation 22:21
    I like that the last verse in the Bible ends in amen.

    Also that in the end of a payer yo say amen like it is finished or you're finishing a promise.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22:21
    The word 'Amen' literally means, "so be it". When a Christian prays to the Father with praise & requests, he does so asking in the Name of Jesus. It is only through Jesus' Name that we can approach God's Throne & it's only in Jesus' Name that God hears & answers prayer. So when we ask according to His Will, in the Name of Jesus, we say 'Amen' signifying that we are truly convinced & burdened about what we've asked for & are assured that God will hear & answer our prayer according to His Will & in His Time. So saying 'Amen' is not just a nice ending to prayer but our affirmation before God.

    A few years ago I was in a horrible spot in my life. Long story short I had an abortion and I'm under serious conviction ov it. I want to know if I'm going to hell ? My life has gone down hill every since. I truly regret the decision
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)

    If you sincerely put your trust in Jesus Christ knowing that he, being the sinless Son of God, laid his life down to pay for our sins, was crucified, dead and buried, and then raised from the dead, you will be saved and fully forgiven.

    He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. (Psalms 103:10-12)

    But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses. (Acts 13:37-39)

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. (Romans 3:23-26)

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
  • A prayer for David on Revelation 22:19
    Heavenly Father, I pray that you will cover this problem with your loving hand. While my mind is confused and struggles to find the right path, I know that you can heal any situation. Bring your peace and hope to my life. Hold me close to you so that my heart and mind may be kept safe. I pray that you will use the power of your truth to transform any darkness into your love and light. You are my fortress and my place of refuge. In times of difficulties, I turn to you for protection from harm. Thank you for protecting me and giving me your blessings in my life , Amen.
  • This light can also be the hope of humanity. The hope of eternal life. All of the sorrows of life, with it's disappointments, betrayals, illnesses and such likes cannot extinguish this eternal hope of mankind.
