    Grace believer, stop adding to the Gospel

    Thanks montana123 for your discourse in which you make many good points. It looks like we differ slightly in how you view the 2 witnesses of Revelation 11. You write that God is sending 2 witnesses in the future. I view the 2 witnesses as a picture of the witnessing true believers give...

    The Redeemer come to or from Zion & do the Israelites have an everlasting convent or will it be taken away?

    Thanks Needevidence for your question about these verses: "And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. " KJV The word 'so' in...

    How can this be?

    The nice thing about being in the Lord is the access directly to the Father, no matter where you are or how accurate or how wrong a person (including ones' self) or a group may be. I find absolutely immense comfort in the fact that in this present world of people and confusion there is a God who...

    Understanding Genesis 1:1

    Thanks GaryA, for your concern. I would imagine that we approach scripture differently. Correct me if I'm wrong about you, but I would imagine that you are looking at the surface text only, and not expecting it to need interpretation beyond a concordance definition of surface words, certainly...

    Understanding Genesis 1:1

    The Bible seems to say in Col 1:18 that Jesus is the beginning: "And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. " That, to me, seems to answer the question you ask about what the beginning really...

    The covenant with Noah

    Thanks Jedothek for your mention of terms in the Genesis 9 promise. We read: "And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. And I will establish my covenant...

    The Feast of Booths, the Feast of Tabernacles, Sukkot, Succot.

    Thank you JacobMartinMertens for your question about: "And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles...And if the family of...

    Thank you JacobMartinMertens for your question about: "And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles...And if the family of...

    I find it very sad when Christians put their opinions over scripture. Some examples.

    "for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." It seems like Jesus is saying that Jonah is a picture of the the Son of man who went to the cross and was 3 days and nights before being...

    Is the true Gospel being preached today?

    Thanks Nehemiah6 for mentioning the gospel. I do not know anything about the first part of your post in reference to a public figure. What I would like to respond to, instead, is your realization that the gospel is one gospel. I agree that the gospel is one gospel and I enjoyed that part of your...

    Why did the blind man see men like trees walking when Jesus first touched him?

    Thanks Deep-Truth for your enjoyable post. Notice at the second touch from Jesus the Bible says that 'he saw everything clearly'. This compares very favorably with verses from John 16: "25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you...

    Metaphorically speaking, who is the woman with the ten silver coins in Luke 15: 8-10?

    Thanks George71, for your comments. The woman who is seeking the coin is not lost, so she could indeed be the Jerusalem above, since she is not the one who is lost. The coin is the one who is lost. To say that someone is the Jerusalem above is just another way of saying the church, the true...

    Metaphorically speaking, who is the woman with the ten silver coins in Luke 15: 8-10?

    Thanks George71, for your question about these verses: "Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together...

    Some questions about things in Revelation 12

    Thanks Leeloving for your question. The Bible says that the wages of sin is death. Everyone has sinned so the Devil was able to accuse people of sin (with a death sentence) ever since Adam. The Bible says that death reigned from Adam (Romans 5). So, the devil was very effective at accusing...

    Fullness of the gentiles

    "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the...

    Is Physical Healing Provided In The Atonement?

    Thanks Grace_Ambassador for bringing up this interesting point about whether being saved by Christ means we are to be physically in perfect health. The Bible is written in an interesting way. God calls it a 'parable' way. We read in Psalm 78: "Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your...
