9:13 When I have bent Judah - In the day's when Judah shall be in my hand as a strong bow, already bent.

    If you're referring to "pure religion", it is found in James 1:27.
  • Howard Dishmon on Zechariah 9:13
    after the loss of her son is it wrong to ask why it was not her instead of her son and pray for death
  • Mishael - in Reply on Zechariah 9:13
    For Howard Dishmon: I went through that with my Dads death. We were real close. I would wear his shirts and pray to die. If it's not our time, it's not. Slowly I joined the living again. One night I had a dream, in color. It's never faded. He was walking towards me down our family home driveway. He was young, smiling with that eye twinkle I loved. I woke up. Later it was like God had shown me that my Dad was with Him and not destroyed by Alzheimer's anymore. Life continues but our loved ones wait for our arrival there. Why would God break their hearts by allowing loved ones see us struggle, on earth Live. Stay close to God. Ask the Holy Spirit to come alongside you & comfort you.

    Question: Which is the correct water baptismal formula, Matthew 28:19 0r Acts 2:38
  • Jesse - in Reply on Zechariah 9:13
    There is no formula. The reason all three of the Godhead are mentioned in Matt 28:19 is because the Jews immersed three times. Today we do it once. But the Jews would dunk three times for baptism. They don't why, except Jesus said when you immerse three times, one's in the name of the Father, one's in the name of the Son, and one's in the name of the Holy Spirit. Guess who changed it Constantine! He said if Jesus told them to do it three times, we're only going to do it once just to be different. That's why Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is used in Matt 28:19. But in Acts 2:38, they baptized in the name of Jesus. So now we have this big battle over baptisms, one is Jewish, and one is Gentile.
  • Fidel on Zechariah 9:13
    Jesus allowed Lazarus to die to show His power. He has also healed and delivered others from death during his ministry. Not one of those raised from the dead were given a glorified body...Jesus was the first, and an example for us all. Remember His burden was to redeem mankind from sin and death through His blood.

    Why Philip Could not Bautize in the Holy Espirit in Samaria
  • Chris - in Reply on Zechariah 9:13
    Diana, I'm not sure what you are referring to with Philip. Acts chapter 8 gives the account of Philip's ministry in Samaria & his meeting with the Ethiopian eunuch on the way to Jerusalem. Philip was not restricted in where he could baptize. Could you elaborate as to what Scripture you saw about this, or your understanding
  • Corey Brown on Zechariah 9:13
    If Lazarus was raised from the dead can he die again or is he still alive
