|1||Luke 21:32 "geneav" translated in AMP?||Prov 30:6||Vintage68||217816|
In light of these scriptures, which generation was Jesus speaking of? And why? Let scripture speak.
John the Baptist spoke to them about the wrath to come.
Jesus during his ministry spoke many times using the term "this generation" and what "they" were like.
I have capitalized for emphasis.
But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them,
O GENERATION OF VIPERS, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
But whereunto shall I liken THIS GENERATION? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,
34.) O GENERATION OF VIPERS, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
39.) But he answered and said unto them, AN EVIL AND ADULREROUS GENERATION seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
41.) The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with THIS GENERATION, AND SHALL CONDEMN IT: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, BEHOLD, A GREATER THAN JONAS IS HERE.
42.) The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with THIS GENERATION, AND SHALL CONDEMN IT: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, BELOLD, A GREATER THAN SOLOMON IS HERE.
45.) Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
EVEN SO SHALL IT BE ALSO UNTO THIS WICKED GENERATION.
A WICKED AND ADULTEROUS GENERATION seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
Then Jesus answered and said, O FAITHLESS AND PERVERSE GENERATION, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
33.) Ye serpents, YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YOU ESCAPE the damnation of hell?
36.) Verily I say unto you, ALL THESE THINGS SHALL COME UPON THIS GENERATION.
VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU Verily, THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS, TILL ALL THESE THINGS
12.) And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth THIS GENERATION seek after a sign?
verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto THIS GENERATION.
38.) WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL BE ASHAMED OF ME AND OF MY WORDS IN THIS ADULTEROUS AND SINFUL GENERATION; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed,
when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
He answereth him, and saith, O FAITHLESS GENERATION, how long shall I be with you? how long
shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS, TILL ALL THESE THINGS BE DONE .
Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O GENERATION OF VIPERS,
WHO HATH WARNED YOU TO FLEE FROM THE WRATH TO COME?
And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of THIS GENERATION? and to what are they like?
And Jesus answering said, O FAITHLESS AND PERVERSE GENERATION, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.
29.) And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, THIS IS AN EVIL GENERATION:
THEY SEEK AFTER A SIGN; AND THERE SHALL NO SIGN BE GIVEN IT, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.
30.) For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, SO SHALL ALSO THE SON OF MAN BE TO THIS GENERATION.
31.) The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of THIS GENERATION, AND CONDEMN THEM: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, BEHOLD, A GREATER THAN SOLOMON IS HERE.
32.) The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with THIS GENERATION, AND SHALL CONDEMN IT:
for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, BEHOLD, A GREATER THAN JONAS IS HERE.
50.) THAT THE BLOOD OF ALL THE PROPHETS, which was shed from the foundation of the world, MAY BE REQUIRED OF THIS GENERATION,
51.) From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, IT SHALL BE REQUIRED OF THIS GENERATION.
BUT FIRST MUST HE SUFFER MANY THINGS, AND BE REJECTED OF THIS GENERATION.
Verily I say unto you, THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS AWAY, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.
|2||If we don't forgive,not forgiven by us?||John 20:23||Vintage68||217805|
|3||Using the word Lucifer||Is 14:12||Vintage68||217779|
These are the Strong's numbers with definitions.
Lucifer only used once in Old Test. Isa. 14:12
You are justified in using the name, she has the problem.
From H1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning star: - lucifer.
A primitive root; to be clear (originally of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show; to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causatively to celebrate; also to stultify: - (make) boast (self), celebrate, commend, (deal, make), fool (-ish, -ly), glory, give [light], be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, [sing, be worthy of] praise, rage, renowned, shine.
|4||Is Desiderata in the Bible?||Romans||Vintage68||217762|
Ecc.3 - - seems to fit your query, you did say.
"I remember reading in the Bible (Old Testament) a text very similar to the poem "Desiderata"
Hope this helps:-)
|5||what does the bible say about widows?||James||Vintage68||217599|
These are the scriptures I think might pertain to your question, go to the ones that seem to fit, and read more.
22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
18 He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.
19 Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen.
5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
10 And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.
5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
1 Timothy 5:3-5, 9, 11, 16
3 Honour widows that are widows indeed.
4 But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.
5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.
9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man.
11 But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
16 If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indee
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
|6||Truth apart from wisdom?||Ps 51:6||Vintage68||217527|
Define truth, as you are using it.
Wisdom, is the culmination of Knowledge, and Understanding.
Lev 19:32 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.
Pro 16:31 The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.
The hoary head is white hair, to be found in the aged, who over the course of their lifetime, have gained Knowledge, understanding, of the Holy, and have attained the right to sit in the gates of the city speaking Wisdom.
1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
|7||two bethlehems one being ephrata||Mic 5:2||Vintage68||217526|
From H6509; fruitfulness; Ephrath, another name for Bethlehem; once used in Psa.132:6
From H1004 and H3899; house of bread; Beth-Lechem, a place in Palestine: - Beth-lehem.
Gen 35:16 And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.
And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said, We are witnesses. The LORD make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem:
These were the sons of Caleb the son of Hur, the firstborn of Ephratah; Shobal the father of Kirjathjearim,
And Penuel the father of Gedor, and Ezer the father of Hushah. These are the sons of Hur, the firstborn of Ephratah, the father of Bethlehem.
Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
This may help
|8||Truth and Wisdom||Ps 51:6||Vintage68||217521|
How does God make us to "know wisdom"?
The answer can be found in Proverbs, the first 10 chapters,
they explain the gaining of Knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom.
|9||Does prayer change God's mind?||Jon 3:10||Vintage68||217453|
|Hi Montana mom
"If God already knows beginning to end, how does prayer change his mind? Or does it?"
My question would be, do you have something more specific your thinking of?
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
The three areas of our life mentioned above, Jesus tells us if we seek His kingdom He will provide these things to us.
For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
It appears as though, both Physical, and Spiritual things that are supplied to us, we keep:-)
At this point then, what is left, that you might pray for, attempting to change Gods' mind?
This has been a very thought provoking question, on the grounds, there are things we might attribute to God, that we pray about all the time,
Therefore the question remains, will prayer change Gods' mind, if it is something He has given us?
|10||how to serve (quantity-wise) at church||Rom 12:7||Vintage68||216955|
I see that Paul's emphasis is on the persons motive. Having a humble spirit, willing to serve. Not trying to run everything.
3.) For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, (not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think); but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4.) For as we have many members in one body, and (all members have not the same office):
6.) (Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us), whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
In answer to your specific question, I don't feel that there is anything wrong in a person filling in positions that are vacant, if they have that gift also, until such a time as the Lord fills that position for the Church.
When the Church is in order, the Holy Spirit can then lead the Church, in the right direction.
The Holy Spirit will raise up what the Church needs, that your less comely parts, may have more comeliness.
The attributing of both quantity, and quality, should be the same understanding here.
|11||Lying is a sin. Rahab did it for the en,||James 2:25||Vintage68||216945|
Can the lie that Rahab spoke be justified by, the righteous her act?
Can our sin be nullified by, our good deeds?
What makes what Rahab spoke a sin? By what measure do you judge it as such?
Can we be saved, justified, or become righteous, by works, without faith?
|12||abide||1 John 2:3||Vintage68||216914|
If I have this right then God is the one who placed me in Christ and if I remain or stay in Him (by choice) I should walk as He walked. According to the Gospels He walked uprightly following the LORD's commands all His commands. Neither turning to the right or the left. It seems to me that this is how we should walk to walk as He walked. Does that make any sense?
Jesus tells them to walk in righteousness.
That is only done by the keeping of the law, Jesus is the only person ever to have kept the law, thus fulfilling it. When we accept Jesus as our savior, we then walk in Jesus, His righteousness passes on to us. We stand in Jesus, we stand in the righteousness of Christ.
That is for us, the keeping of the law. Jesus said the law shall not pass away.
16.) Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17.) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18.) For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19.) Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20.) For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
In our keeping of what Jesus called the 1st. and the 2nd. commandments, we "WILL" keep the whole law.
28.) And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
29.) And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
30.) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31.) And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
This is just for clarification within the thread.
When Jesus says in Mark 18:31.) And the (SECOND) is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
It is understood that this commandment is not spoken within the Tables of the 10 commandments.
It is listed in the book of Leviticus under the heading of sundry laws.
18.) Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.
In conclusion, Jesus says, in the keeping of these 2 commandments, you will "NOT" break any of the other commandments, thereby fulfilling the law.
In essence we are dead to the law, the law has no more hold on us, as long as we walk in the Spirit.
4.) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
1 Corinthians 15:21
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
1 Corinthians 15:56
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
"Walking in the Spirit "IS" Abiding in Jesus", thereby walking as He walked
|13||intercouse with wife||Prov 5:18||Vintage68||216856|
According to the Christian, as well as the Jewish beliefs, as Doc has stated,
"God created us to enjoy what is appropriately ours to enjoy."
"The problem arises when we desire something that does not rightly belong to us."
But according to your own Hindu writings, and beliefs, what do they say about the situation?
By following what the Bible says, might come in conflict with the teachings of your own Religion.
If you want to receive the full blessings that Jesus has provided for His followers, why don't you ask Him into your heart? That way you can really know the Father, because the Father (GOD), the Son (JESUS), the HOLY SPIRIT, are all the same in ONE. After doing that find a Christian Church near you.
|14||Should we dedicate older children to Him||1 Sam 1:28||Vintage68||216802|
As close as I can come in scripture, to the dedication of children to the Lord, would be.
Samuel 1 Sam. 1:11-28, Samson Judges 13:1-25, John the Baptist 1 Luke 1:-80 These were all dedicated to the Lord, by their parents.
In looking closely at these stories, they are VOWS taken by the parent for the child. Is that something that a parent of today is prepared for? All 3 women were barren, all 3 children were Nazarites. It also seems as though God innitiated the dedication in all 3 instances.
|15||Rapture||1 Thess 4:17||Vintage68||216801|
Putting it as simply as possible, Jesus said.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
With this now in mind, what makes you think, you will find in scripture where it says (when) he will return?
|16||man born without a father||Genesis||Vintage68||216729|
|Hi WORK IN PROGRESS
From the sound of your three questions, I think you may fail your course;-(
|17||can a child be baptised||Bible general Archive 4||Vintage68||216727|
Why should it be such a big deal to those not practicing infant baptism, if an infant is baptized within
the doctrinal guidelines of the church doing the baptism? I'm sure there are things, both denominations believe, when looked at closely, would not stand doctrinal muster with the other denomination. Nobody has
it all, everybody thinks they do, but they don't, that's why we have so many different denominations to begin with.
Baptism does not bring salvation, it is not a part of the salvation process. Baptism was performed in a close proximity to salvation, as depicted in the bible.
These events have been outlined very well by Searcher, therefore I don't see the need to repost them now.
Baptism, by the words of Jesus Himself, (John 3:1-9) are the opening of our eyes to see His Kingdom, and the opening of the door to us that we may enter His kingdom. The process, is our identifying with His death, and resurrection, becoming born again. But the lack of seeing or entering His kingdom, does not mean you have not received salvation.
But in answer to your question. Sure a child can be baptized, as you have seen in the answers given, there is no clear cut consensus as to the validity of child baptism. Therefore we will all have to wait until were all in heaven to find out for sure, then there will be those that were right, and those that will have been wrong. But either way it isn't something that will hurt the child. Is there anybody that would categorically forbid the baptism to take place?
I do not believe in infant baptism, but my in-laws' do, so to give them the peace of mind, they needed,
I let my child be baptized in their Church.
In contract law neither a child (infant), nor a mentally incompetent adult, can enter into a contract.
The person entering into a contract, needs to be able to understand the terms of the contract, as to what is expected of them, and what to expect from the other person in the contract.
No (proxy) agreement can be made for either party.
|18||How do you know when GOD is talking to y||Bible general Archive 4||Vintage68||216617|
|Hi Hood Rat
The way you have phrased your question, it seems that you are asking, when God has spoken to me, how will I know it,
As others have said, there isn't any definitive answer to specifically say this is the way God speaks,
but a good way to start would be, for you to FILL your Heart with His word. Then there will be something there for the Holy Ghost to call back to your memory. God speaks in our minds, If it doesn't exist in your heart, then you have to rely on either reading those words, letting God speak to you that way, or by God using someone else to speak to you verbally.

Whenever a question that is so precise about the information needed, about such a convoluted question, the flags go up, that this is a school question.
The place you are presently studying, should give you some kind of Idea as to the answer to your question.
