#4252 Jesus is talking to his disciples and referring to the Jews as the other guys.
#4305 Parable about the Kenites
#4321Jesus suspended the reading of this passage (Luke 4:16-21) with the words "year of the Lord." The first advent, therefore, opening the day of grace, "the acceptable year of the Lord," but does not fulfill the day of vengeance that will be accomplished when Messiah returns (2 Th. 1:7-10.)
#4343 After each individual confesses his sins and asks for forgiveness in Jesus name and learns to know Him by studying to show himself approved, thereby, becoming a Christian, He will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sins no more
#4345It was the course of Abijah that Zacharias, the husband of Elisabeth and the father of John the Baptist, performed his priestly service in the Temple in Jerusalem (Lk.1:5).
#4356I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
#4360Jesus recited this Psalm while on the cross. No wonder one thief was converted.
#4363 This verse predicts Jesus the birth of Jesus "The king of kings" to happen in Bethlehem.
#4366This verse reminds me of our United States citizens being made to support our overgrown government which spends money we don't have in the name of helping the poor while ignoring what our Lord told us we should do for the poor.
#4368 Satan's (the spurious messiah's) ten kings from Revelation 17:12
#4369Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth
#4370 This verse sure conjures up some vivid imagery in the minds of the reader, doesn't it?
#4387Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: This is really simple, except for the fact that one must know who the whole house of Israel is, mustn't he? Do you?
#4400This "treasure hid in a field" is not a reference to the people we call Jews today.
#4401 God with us.
#4402 God the Father, Son and Spirit.
#4403 Most people would have us believe that the "Sermon on the Mount" was taught to a large group of people, who had gathered around him, but we find here that he left the people behind and was speaking to his disciples only.
#4404 It sure makes me wonder if none of the long winded ministers I've heard in my life time ever read this verse of scripture!
#4405 The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
#4405aGive not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, ...
#4405bYou see, there are many people (multitudes of them) who go to church, but there are actually few of them who seek and study the Word of God (2 Tim. 2:25) on a daily basis and ask Him for their daily bread that they might receive pearls of wisdom.
#4406Many Christian ministers come in his name and do everything but His will!
#4407"They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
#4408Your loved ones will believe they are doing the right thing by bringing you to the one they think is "Jesus" when in fact they shall unknowingly be delivering you up to death himself.
#4409 You must go to Jesus Christ, to the Word of God, privately (Mark 13:3) when you do not know something and seek revelation (understanding) by listening to His Voice, hearing His words in your ear!
#4410 You see, Dante's Inferno is an imagination of a man and is not scriptural in the least.
#4411And so it is that "whosoever" will confess Jesus Christ, the true Logos, the Word of God, before men instead of the "sweet little Lord Jesus" traditions of men, is that servant who shall be in good standing... having done the Father's will... and the Lord Jesus Christ who now sits at His right hand in heaven shall surely confess that faithful one before the Father!
#4412 Notice that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, comprising the triune Godhead, are all mentioned in this verse which is quoted from Isa. 42:1... which is in the Old Testament. Imagine that!
#4413The Unpardonable sin, it is during that "same hour" when Satan as the spurious messiah is here, the hour of temptation when the Holy Spirit shall also be present and evident before men, that the unforgivable sin can be committed.
Jesus said, "Jonas was three days and three nights in the
whale's belly" as in full days and full nights!
#4425 Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
#4426 The context of this question lets us know that the disciples are asking who "among us" is the greatest.
#4427 it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
#4428 I suspect that our angels are us in the spirit still in heaven observing and learning from our actions in the flesh right here and now on earth.
#4429What Christ is simply saying is that if two (or more) of His disciples, His representatives who come in His name, ask for help in carrying forth that work according to His will, Father will see to it that they shall receive it.
#4430You may think you are a pretty good Christian because of all the wonderful things you do, but when it comes right down to where the rubber meets the road... unless you unload whatever it is you have on your camel's back and humbly turn to Him in repentance, you'll never get through the gate.
#4431When you show a brother or sister what the Word of God says concerning the bad "fig tree", you shrivel up and wither away the image that they once had of that tree being good, i.e. as being God's chosen people.
#4432 Then when the flesh body dies and they return home in their spiritual body, they are the same as before, i.e. one gender.
#4433They come as Christian preachers, pastors, ministers, teachers, priests, etc., etc., all claiming to represent Him and saying "Jesus is Lord", "Praise the Lord", "Lord, Lord"! The problem is all that most of them teach are the idolatrous traditions of men! Very few claiming to represent Him in these last days ever teach the Word of God chapter by chapter and verse by verse whereby the people can come to know Christ and become firmly founded upon the true Rock.
#4434 No, you really don't want to be the first one taken in the field, for if you are already "taken" when Jesus Christ comes, you are in big, big, trouble!
#4435 What are "lamps" and "oil" symbolic of?
#4436 The point is, if you are a servant of the Living God sent to labor in the vineyard, then you are not here so much to save yourself, for He has already justified you and chosen you and called you to your labor (Rom. 8:30), but rather to bring forth the "goods", i.e. the "good treasure", Old Testament and New, which He has entrusted you with and given you a measure (talent) thereof!
#4437Teach a man how to eat the Bread of Life and you feed his soul for all eternity.
#4438If you don't know this parable you can not understand any of the Lord's parables.
#4439Whosoever shall lose his life for Jesus sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
#4440Mighty miracles only happen for those who truly believe the Lord performs miracles!
#4441Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
#4442 It is those who ask "according to His will" who are actually "in His will"!
#4443 The point Christ is making here to the Sadducees is that those who know the scriptures know that angels are all alike as sons of God and that woman (womb-man, i.e. a man with a womb) was formed for this flesh age only, whereby those sons could be born into this dimension.
#4444 "There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." is a spiritual statement that has nothing to do with the physical temple building.
#4445 Christ's commission to the eleven
#4446Shepherds tending flocks in the field when Jesus was born! Not in late December I am sure!
#4447 After Satan failed to cause the Lord Jesus to depart from Scripture, he seeks to tempt Jesus by Scripture. However Satan misquotes it by omitting the phrase "in all thy ways.
#4448Jesus read all of Isaiah 61:1 but stopped after only reading the first part of Isaiah 61:2, Why?
#4449Question! Is Christ talking about trees or people?
#4450Therefore in conclusion... whosoever hears (with understanding) these sayings of Jesus Christ, the Word of God, and DOETH them, is a WISE MAN!
#4451These are physical but, on the spiritual level, you know who the snake in the garden was, do you not!
#4452Jesus said Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
#4453Whenever I read this verse I think about the National Rifle Association. Sorry, I can't help it!
#4454Parable of fatherhood
#4455 ...Whosoever shall confess Christ before men,...
#4456Parable of testing of servants
#4457 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
#4458Abraham, the rich man and Lazarus, all being in different circumstances after this flesh life ends, are communicating one with the other.
#4459 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you#4460
#4460In the days of Noah the daughters of flesh man were marrying angels who left their first estate; the reason for Noah's flood!
#4461Proper and improper attitudes!
#4462Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein
#4463It is your choice to enter in through that door or struggle with your camel and hope you can make it through the eye of a needle!
#4464 Stay away from the spiritual orgy which He likened to the physical orgies which took place in Sodom and Gomorrah, that vivid ensample that paints a picture in our mind's eye of gross perversion in order that we might draw the analogy to the spiritual perversion that is taking place!
#4465 Eleven disciples, two swords. I can't help but think; If two of every eleven people in America were to travel armed; those who would do us harm, not knowing which two were armed, would pretty much eliminate the random crime problem we currently have our streets, wouldn't it?
#4466The opposite would be, dammed are those who our Lord finds spiritually nursing the anti-christ's child when He returns.
#4467To day shalt thou be with me in paradise
#4468 They rested the sabbath day according to the commandment
#4469Jesus told us that the remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations
#4470 Jesus is the Word and Jesus is God
#4471 Christ was born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
#4472 Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
#4473 Unless you come down and be born of woman, and then go into, be born, into your spiritual body, you cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Got it? First of water, of flesh, and then of spirit. The fallen angels did not do this and so as it is written in Rev. 11, they shall perish at Christ's return at the 7th Trump.
#4474 This verse says the same thing as John 3:16. If you believe in Jesus Christ then you will receive eternal life.
#4475God is not composed of flesh and He is not limited to a geographical location such as temple or a church building. He is a Spirit being
#4476What Christ is saying is since He does all the judging, if you hear His word, and believe on Him then He won't be judging you, because He'll grant you eternal life, the granting of which is TOTALLY UP TO HIM.
#4477Father God, has also given his Son, Jesus, life and complete control of it; it can't be taken away.
#4478Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me
#4479 "Yeah man, those were the best fish sandwiches we have ever eaten! Got any more?"
#4480 Bread and fish will feed your flesh and keep it alive (for awhile), but only the Bread which came down from heaven can feed your soul and keep it alive (forever).
#4481 God's will is that none should perish. All those who are Christ's at His coming, will be part of the first resurrection, meaning that they will be raised [granted] eternal life at that time.
#4482 Even "seeing" Jesus in the flesh, even "seeing" Jesus perform a miracle will not cause one to believe! You must "see" Jesus in the spirit and "see" the meaning of His miracles and signs, else you do not believe.
#4483 So the question is, How does one seek Christ? By going to church? No, you must seek Him in spirit. And that spirit is HIS WORDS, not a church, not a church building, not a denomination, but HIS WORD!
#4484That hostile group of Jews [kenites] we read of in chapter 1:19 sought to kill Jesus.
#4485 Here's a good question to ask yourself. Is your doctrine the doctrine of your church, handed down in quarterlies, or the doctrine of the Word of God?
#4486You may go to church once or twice a week, but if you do not study the Word of God, then you are not hungry for the bread and you are not thirsty for the water that comes from Him!
#4487 There was darkness in the world following Satan's rebellion in the world that then was (II Pet. 3) and God brought Light into the world to dispel that darkness.
#4488 Jesus Christ, the Word of God, is the truth that shall make you free. Not only will you be free from sin, but you will be free from worry, anxieties, etc., not to mention free from the traditions of men. And this verse does not say that abiding in church will make you free. Church is actually a bondage for many.
#4489 Jesus now identifies the origin of their family "tree".
#4490 He was the I AM, the same I AM Who spoke to Moses, even the same I AM from the beginning
#4491Knowing that it is winter, why do suppose Jesus walked in the temple to Solomon's porch?
#4493Can you imagine what it must be like to witness a man rise up out of a grave and return to life after having died and lain in the grave for four days? Jesus' disciples and a large gathering are about to experience just such a sight! And wait until you see the phenomenal way in which the miracle itself is actually performed. Your eyes are going to pop out! (That's just a figure of speech.)
#4494 He prophesied that Jesus should die not just for Israel, including those scattered abroad, but for all of God's children, all the church of God.
#4495 If you love "you" more than anyone else, even Christ, you are in big trouble. Are you willing to give unto Him your most priceless ointment?
#4496 The lesson being taught here has nothing to do with actual dirty feet. It means that even though we've been baptized and washed clean by the blood of the Lamb, we are going to fall short and need to have "our feet washed".
#4497Jesus is talking to his disciples and refering to Jews as the other guys.
#4498 Perhaps it is easy to love someone who has no faults. It is quite another matter to love someone who has gotten "dirty feet".
#4499 Don't make it such a hard thing to understand that the flesh can't see that which is spiritual? You know you can't see a thought or an idea. Actually, even words are spirit. Oh you can see them in print, but you don't have to. You can hear them which you could say means they are sound waves and therefore physical. But words have meanings and you cannot see a "meaning" under a microscope or detect it on an oscilloscope. You cannot weigh it, nor can you measure it with a ruler. You can only understand it. The Word of God is spiritual. And so it is that the Written Word and the Living Word are one.
#4500And just who would be asking Him for all that wisdom and understanding and perhaps an open door? Those who really and truly love Him, of course! And they have a special quality about them, they keep His commandments, which is all of His Word.
#4501 The "I AM", Jesus Christ, now likens Himself to a vine, which has branches. The question is, "Why would He make this analogy"? The answer is: To teach us, so that we may get a clear PICTURE of how He abides in us and we in Him. And the Father is the husbandman, the vinedresser, the caretaker who goes through the vineyard and prunes the branches and cuts off the dead ones.
#4502If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
#4503No man could have performed the miracles Jesus did. Man cannot feed 5,000 people with 2 fishes and 5 loaves of bread. Man cannot raise another from the dead who has been in the grave for 4 days. Yet, even though they witnessed these awesome miracles, that they know could only from God, they still hated Him.
#4504 The prince of this world has been judged. He was judged in the "world that then was" (II Pet. 3) and sentenced to die (Ezek. 28).
#4505 Yes, He will pour out His Spirit on his servants and handmaidens and they will "see visions", better translated "see the visions", i.e. He will cause you to understand [see] the prophecies [visions], THINGS TO COME
#4506 "In that day" (the day of his return) there will be no question about it, when every eye shall see Him
#4507We are the Family of God. And we are the Champions, for we have the victory because He was victorious and overcame the world and defeated death [Satan].
#4508 So with his wife's words ringing in his ears (yes, wive's words do clang in their husband's ears which is why men have trouble hearing everything they say) Pilate returns outside the hall and tells the Jews,"I find in him no fault at all."
#4509 It is commonly taught that Jesus rose at "sunrise" on Easter Sunday morning, but then what else is new? It is also commonly taught that He was crucified on what the churches call "Good Friday". Both traditional teachings are Biblically incorrect, but then again, what else is new?
#4510"Knowing that the presentation of "Jesus as God" and "Behold your God" is the overall theme of his Gospel, John himself gives us the reason why the events contained in this incredible Gospel were written."
#4511Jesus did not rebuke the apostles for their inquiry about the restoration of the kingdom. Their question was a valid one. But the answer is God's secret.
#4512 The command, specifying the geographic areas to be evangelized, was carried out in exactly the order prescribed here. Jerusalem began at 2:1; in Judaea and Samaria, at 8:5; and throughout the remainder of the earth, at 8:26.
#4513 Are these visions the visions we will see the visions of past prophets as recorded in the old testament?
#4514 Let all the people in the "Christian nations of the earth/the true house of Israel" know that God has made Jesus, whom the Kenites in Jerusalem crucified, both Lord and Christ.
#4515 It shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
#4516 There is only one way to get to heaven, no other name but Jesus will cut it!
#4517 The Holy Spirit of Jesus has been given to us that obey him.
#4518 This was sound advice; too bad for the Sadducees that they did not heed it, but God's plan is "GOD'S PLAN".
#4519 "Just like that", the Sprit of the Lord transported Philip to Azotus, but I guess he had to walk the rest of the way to Caesarea.
#4520 No "Alter Call" for Saul! If you're predestined it's "ZAP" you're mine!
#4521 To all those Christians who think it is now, not only all right but healthy to eat pork; take note to two things. #1. In verse 28 it is written "God has shown me I should not call any man unclean". #2. Peter didn't rush out to the nearest tavern and order a pork sandwich; he went to Caesarea and preached the gospel to Gentiles.
#4522 Just trying to be good enough won't cut it because all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; you need Christ!
#4523 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference between Israelite and gentile, purifying their hearts by faith.
#4524 And thy house!
#4525 The Bereans even checked out what the Apostle Paul taught; should we do any less with what any man teaches today?
#4526I for one, have taken this statement to heart; accepting exactly what it says as fact! For in him we live, and move, and have our being;...
4527 These verses basically say he's not going to turn His head for much longer, but has provided a way for our sins to be covered and we had better take advantage of it soon.
#4528 Was this meeting on Sunday because that the day the disciples chose Sunday as a special day of worship or was it just that it happened to be Sunday when they found people gather.
#4529 Salvation for all through faith in Lord Jesus Christ.
#4530Paul then knew he would be safe for a while longer.
#4531We will all receive our new celestial bodies in the hereafter; that is not to say all our souls are to become immortal.
#4532Paul refers to our twelve tribes and the Jews as 2 different groups.
#4533The just shall live by faith.
#4534They are without excuse:
#4535Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
#4536Those who obey the truth seek immortality and eternal life.
#4537No one can be righteous by observing the law. Though the law we become conscious of sin. Rightness comes through faith is Christ
#4538Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
#4539But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
#4540Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
#4541 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
#4542For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
#4543For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
#4544We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
#4545Do you know who are the real Israelites?
#4546 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
#4547God to show mercy to Israel and the Gentiles.
#4548 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
#4549Otherwise grace is no more grace.
#4550 Them (House of Judah), World (Non Israelites), and Gentiles (House of Ephraim) = Three different groups of peoples.
#4551That ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
#4552Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord
#4553For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. That's a hard pill to swallow, but it's all part of God's plan for the good of we, His creation.
#4554I know! I know!, but I'm still not eating pork.
#4555He even left man kill him!
#4556 For our learning is why scriptures were written!
#4557 According to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began
#4558Human wisdom contrasted with the wisdom of God. (i.e. the cross)
#4559What is the mind of Christ that we Christians have? except it be The Holy Spirit which He gave to us.
#4560 All True Christians will be saved, but they will be rewarded according to their works
#4561Christ our passover! is what we should be celebrating in April; not painting "asherah" eggs!
#4562We all were present with The Lord during the first earth age (in our spirit bodies/ angelic or celestial bodies) ; prior to being born into these flesh bodies for this earth age so now being Christians we will judge other angels, i.e. our brethren.
#4563Your past becomes irrelevant when you turn your life over to Jesus.
#4564Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body
#4565 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. Pretty self explanatory! I'd say.
#4566 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
#4567Paul did not look down on any one, but met them under their own terms.
#4568There is much to be learned about the end times by studying what happened to the ancient Israelites,
#4569For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels
#4570no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed
#4571Christians are all brothers in Christ through the Holy Spirit!
#4572For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
#4573A mystery that we need to learn; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed from our terrestrial/flesh and blood bodies into our celestial/spiritual bodies in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump which is when Christ returns.
#4574Anathema (Greek word for "accursed") Maranatha (mean. our Lord has come) maranatha , i.e. an exclamation of the approaching divine judgment:-Maran-atha.
#4575We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. What a blessing to look forward to.
#4576 Christians; I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
#4577Question: How do we know Eve was physically seduced rather than only deceived? Answer: Look at the punishment and the cover up!
#4578Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one
#4579 Paul was caught up, spiritually shown, the third heaven;as in the 1st.one being the one that was, the 2nd.one being the one that is now, the 3rd.one being the one that is to come. Same as three earth ages.
#4580 Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you
#4581 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
#4582Paul, after his conversion did not go to the other apostles to learn more.He went off to Arabia by himself to learn from the Holy Ghost. NO OTHER INFLUENCE!
#4583You can not do good enough to be justified! You need complete faith in Christ.
#4584For if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
#4585 The just shall live by faith.
#4586But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God.
#4587Listen only to the Holy Spirit and walk in his ways.!
#4588For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
#4589We predestined from the 1st. earth age. Ye who accept Christ now in this earth age.
#4590For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
#4591 The Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel
#4592 Be renewed in the spirit of your mind;that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
#4593 Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
#4594nurture:up-bringing-training-tender nurture of sensitive minds admonition:to reprove mildly-to urge,exhort
#4595 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
#4596You being a Christian; he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
#4597 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
#4598 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
#4599 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
#4600Be found in Christ, not having your own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
#4601There are many that are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.
#4602 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
#4603Christ is the image of the invisible God and he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
#4604In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight
#4605 If ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
#4606 Above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
#4607 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man
#4608Paul refers tothe Jews as they/their own prophets and to himself and the people of the Christian churches as us. As two seperate peoples; he and the Christians of Israelite descent; the Jews from different ancestral descent.
#4609 Well, if the saints are in their spiritual bodies and we are still in our flesh bodies, how shall we be gathered together to meet the Lord in the air?
#4610Know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
#4611 Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil
#4612Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
#4613 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
#4614 Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
#4615 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
#4616 Paul said, "Jesus preached unto the Gentiles". (When did this happen?)Was it in Europe prior to his 30thy birthday and therefore, not recorded?
Paul said every creature of God may be eaten if received with thanksgiving,
but I have a problem justifying this in my mind based on Genesis
9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as
the green herb have I given you all things. Even as the green herb to me
means don't eat pork any more than you would eat poison ivy.
#4618 Our Saviour Jesus Christ hath abolished death and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
#4619 Remember, Jesus Christ was raised from the dead.
#4620 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
#4621 Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
#4622 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
#4623 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost
#4624 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
#4625 Both He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
#4626 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace
#4627 Quite frankly that means that they are still baby Christians and cannot tell the difference between the "tree of life" and the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil".
#4628 Simply open your mouth and take the little book and begin to eat it as per His instructions!
#4629 No mortal priest can give you life or offer sacrifice to atone for your sins, because he doesn't have life to give you!
It doesn't matter how religious you are or what lofty position you might
hold within the tabernacles of men! It matters only that He dwells in you
you in Him for if you are to "live", as in have eternal life, then you must live by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
#4631One of requirements for salvation is that each son of God come down from above and be born of flesh and die the first death, the death of the flesh.
#4632 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Why is it a fearful [formidable] thing? Because you "see", God can destroy not only your flesh body, but your very soul. He is the one you should fear, as in revere!
#4633Now Paul is going to "Remember the Days of Old" and show us the substance of what real faith is made of!
#4634 It is extremely important that you understand how the word "cloud" is used here as you study other places it is used in your Bible.
#4635 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth
#4636 "Our God is a consuming fire."
#4637 The subject Paul is going to discuss in detail in this chapter is the 'endurance' of the work of the church of "brotherly love", which is "philadelphia" in Greek.
#4638 James did not write this letter to the Jews as we know them today, not the little country currently living in the middle east which is made up of a few members of the tribe of Judah (those few who returned with Ezra in the 5th century BC) but mostly of kenites. If he meant his letter for them he could have hand carried it across town when he wrote it in 45 AD; after all he wrote it from Jerusalem!
#4639Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
#4640 Don't make the mistake of SEEING this only in terms of the flesh.
#4641 James has written this letter to the tribes of Israel who were scattered and migrated over the Caucasus mountains and into Europe and later over into the Americas, etc.
#4642Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
#4643 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
#4644One should never use the knowledge of the truth which has set us free to "slice" up, i.e. to belittle or make a fool of someone who doesn't have eyes to see or ears to hear.
#4645The more you pray and study His Word, the more room you give Him so that when persecution or false accusation, i.e. the opportunity to do the right thing, presents itself to the nuclear reactor of your mind, there He may appear also to prevent a meltdown of your character and conduct as a Christian.
#4646For the cause of judging, i.e. for the cause of salvation the gospel was preached also to them that are "dead".
#4647Just so we are clear on who the "house of God" is:
#4648 These two Greek words translated "care" and "careth" in verse 7 are not the same.
#4649 But consider that there are many busy, active, Christians that do claim to know Him and yet they have no knowledge of the Written Word, and worse yet, they think they are in His good graces.
#4650 Peter is simply saying that the Word of God isn't just the "writings of fallible, human, men", which is what we often hear the scoffers say today, isn't it? But the Bible is truly from God, authored by the Holy Spirit which is His divine power!
#4651If you have accepted Jesus and not been taught the oracles of God in this generation, then you will follow Satan, when he appears, for you will believe he is Jesus.
#4652 Notice that Peter gives credentials to Paul and calls his epistles "scriptures". And yes, some of Paul's writings would be, and are for the unlearned, hard to understand if one doesn't know about the 3 Earth Ages. Eph. 1:4 where Paul talks about God's elect being chosen before the foundation/destruction of this earth age is really hard for some to explain.
#4653 Fellowship one with another= You and/or me with Christ; Not fellowship you with me together, without Christ.
#4654 It is one thing to say that you believe in Jesus Christ and that you fellowship with Him but it is an entirely different matter to KNOW that you KNOW Him, with NEVER a DOUBT!
#4655Now let's think for a moment: If Satan went after Christ who knew who he was, what makes us think he won't come after us?
#4656Since God's elect have received the anointing of the Holy Spirit they do not need any of man's teachings, i.e. the traditions of men, because they have His Word.
#4657 If you do these things His blessings will flow and you will be one happy child.
#4658For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
#4659 The fact is that the instant a person "confesses that Jesus Christ is the Son of God" he receives the Holy Spirit and "God now dwelleth in him."
#4660The unforgivable sin is a spiritual sin unto death, perdition, that can only be committed by one of God's elect, i.e. one of His servants who has come to a full knowledge of the Truth, His Word. Therefore since most Christians are Biblically illiterate and do not have eyes to see and ears to hear, they cannot even commit the unforgivable sin!
#4661For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.
#4662We know that angel came to earth and impregnated human daughters on man. But, the fact that they left their first estate proves they had a first estate.
#4663 The reason John writes that these things must "shortly come to pass" is because we will find in verse 10 that John isn't writing from the perspective of 96 A.D.
#4664 Always "See" the picture first, before concerning yourself with the symbolism.
#4665 Whew, that's pretty powerful stuff! You bet! Jesus Christ identified these same impostors who lay claim to God's inheritance in John chapter 8.
#4666He has created all things for His pleasure, which includes you and me.
#4667The seven Spirits of God (#1)power, and (#2)riches, and (#3)wisdom, and (#4)strength, and (#5)honour, and (#6)glory, and (#7)blessing.
#4668The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
#4669 Have you ever heard about the 144,000 of Revelation?
#4670 The 7 Trumpets of chapters 8 through 11 and the 7 Vials of chapter 16 which are exactly the same.

#4674Satan drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth
#4675Satan can snap his "pinkies" and lightning falls from the sky. Get ready!
#4676Wow, could we ever make Dante's Inferno come alive with verse 11.
#4677 Available No pamphlet/not being used for The Revelation studies
#4678The whole world will be worshipping the false messiah and will think that Jesus is ALREADY HERE!
#4679One hour in varse 12 is the hour of temptation (Rev. 3:10).
#4680Come out of confusion!
#4681So do you get the PICTURE in verse 18 that there will be a lot of carcasses lying around for the birds to feast on and clean up? Pretty graphic isn't it?
#4682But the whole expression together simply means that Satan will be consumed, debased, gone, day and night (for all eternity), forever and ever (to be no more).
#4683The word "first" used here is the Greek word "protos" and is the same word translated "former" in verse 4. Note: The Living Bible does translate "present" instead of "first" in Rev. 21:1.
