|43||Building Endurance||James 1:2||prayon||171749|
|Greetings Jason, It means that whatever situation or trial we are in we should be joyful whether we are in that trial because of earthly things or whether we are in battle in the spiritual world. We should never be depressed or "down and out". God is instructing us to remain joyful in all situations.
I have found that no matter how difficult the situation is, no matter what I am facing I can always find something to be joyful about and when I do that it makes the battle easier! prayon
|44||Who hid their faces?||Is 53:3||prayon||171682|
|Hi Searcher, Is 53:3 is not that they literally hid their eyes. The prophet here, using the first person, spoke for his unbelieving nation's aversion to a crucified Messiah and their lack of respect for the incarnate Son of God. They did not see the truth that was before them.

|46||what sin does obadiah point out?||Obad 1:4||prayon||167163|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum! The theme of the book is the judgement of Edom for cursing Israel. Pride was the main sin. It also gives out a few warnings -
1) Anyone who does not help God's people is God's enemy
2) No matter how safe you think you are God can change it
3) You will reap what you sow
4) Destruction comes for those who defy God.
Hope this helps. prayon
|47||What info is available in 1 Samuel 28:7?||1 Sam 28:7||prayon||167127|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum! In this passage it tells us that Saul has taken his eyes off of God and turned to mediums (witchcraft). These were the exact people that he had already run out of the land (28:3). Saul had rejected God so God removed His prophets out of Sauls kingdom. Since Saul did not have the advice of the prophets he turned to mediums. prayon|
|48||how do i come closer to god?||Phil 4:8||prayon||167118|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum! You are not alone in your fears - many people have felt that way. Every emotion that you mentioned - fear, doubt, and unworthiness are not from God - they come from Satan. What is happening is you are seeking God and when you seek God you become a threat to Satan and his plans. Any time you become a threat to him he will put every type of emotion he can to stop you from growing closer to God.
Here are some scriptures that will help you when you begin to doubt in God.
Psa 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation. Who is there to fear? The LORD is my life's fortress. Who is there to be afraid of?
Psa 34:4 I went to the LORD for help. He answered me and rescued me from all my fears.
Isa 41:10 Don't be afraid, because I am with you. Don't be intimidated; I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will support you with my victorious right hand.
2Ti 1:7 For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Joh 14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Joh 20:27 ...do not be ready to disbelieve but to believe."
Heb 12:1 Since we are surrounded by so many examples of faith, we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially sin that distracts us. We must run the race that lies ahead of us and never give up.
Jos 1:9 "I have commanded you, 'Be strong and courageous! Don't tremble or be terrified, because the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.'"
Mat 17:20 He told them, "Because you have so little faith. I can guarantee this truth: If your faith is the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
Gen 1:26-27 And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female.
Psa 139:14 I will praise You; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are marvelous and my soul knows it very well.
Always remember do not dwell on your fears but instead Phi 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, keep your thoughts on whatever is right or deserves praise: things that are true, honorable, fair, pure, acceptable, or commendable.
Hope his helps, prayon
|49||What proof do you find in Genesis 22:10-||Gen 22:11||prayon||167115|
|Greetings Hana, I believe you are talking about verse 11 not 10. Angel of the Lord literally means 'messenger of Yahweh'. If you look at Ex 3:2 it says that the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in the burning bush. In verse 6 it says that the voice said "I am the God of your Father - the God of Abraham..." therefore if it says the Angel was God here it must mean the same thing in every other instance. (Principle of Context) prayon|
|50||How does Gen. 22:10-14 show another side||Gen 22:10||prayon||167113|
|Greetings Hana, In the previous tests God tested whether Abraham would give into temptation. This test, called the test of unshakable faith, was different because it tested Abraham's heart. God told Abraham to kill his only son and with that ending the Abrahamic covenant since this was Abraham's only son. prayon|
|51||Who in the Bible built Babylon?||Gen 10:10||prayon||167111|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum!
Babylon means “The Gate of God.” In the Assyrian tablets it means “The city of the dispersion of the tribes.” The monumental list of its kings reaches back to 2300 B.C., and includes Khammu-rabi, or Amraphel, the contemporary of Abraham.
Babylon is first mentioned in Gen 10:10 which tells us it was one of the first cities in Nimrods kingdom.
It stood on the Euphrates, about 200 miles above its junction with the Tigris, which flowed through its midst and divided it into two almost equal parts. The Elamites invaded Chaldea (i.e., Lower Mesopotamia, or Shinar, and Upper Mesopotamia, or Accad, now combined into one) and held it in subjection. At length Khammu-rabi delivered it from the foreign yoke, and founded the new empire of Chaldea, making Babylon the capital of the united kingdom. This city gradually grew in extent and grandeur, but in process of time it became subject to Assyria. On the fall of Nineveh (606 B.C.) it threw off the Assyrian yoke, and became the capital of the growing Babylonian empire. Under Nebuchadnezzar it became one of the most splendid cities of the ancient world.
After passing through various vicissitudes the city was occupied by Cyrus, “king of Elam,” 538 B.C., who issued a decree permitting the Jews to return to their own land (Ezr 1:1-11). It then ceased to be the capital of an empire. It was again and again visited by hostile armies, till its inhabitants were all driven from their homes, and the city became a complete desolation, its very site being forgotten from among men.
On the west bank of the Euphrates, about 50 miles south of Bagdad, there is found a series of artificial mounds of vast extent. These are the ruins of this once famous proud city. These ruins are principally
(1.) the great mound called Babil by the Arabs. This was probably the noted Temple of Belus, which was a pyramid about 480 feet high.
(2.) The Kasr (i.e., “the palace”). This was the great palace of Nebuchadnezzar. It is almost a square, each side of which is about 700 feet long. The little town of Hillah, near the site of Babylon, is built almost wholly of bricks taken from this single mound.
(3.) A lofty mound, on the summit of which stands a modern tomb called Amran ibn-Ali. This is probably the most ancient portion of the remains of the city, and represents the ruins of the famous hanging-gardens, or perhaps of some royal palace. The utter desolation of the city once called “The glory of kingdoms” (Isa_13:19) was foretold by the prophets (Isa. 13:4-22; Jer_25:12; Jer_50:2, Jer_50:3; Dan_2:31-38).
The Babylon mentioned in 1Pe_5:13 was not Rome, as some have thought, but the literal city of Babylon, which was inhabited by many Jews at the time Peter wrote.
In Rev_14:8; Rev_16:19; Rev_17:5; Rev_18:2, “Babylon” is supposed to mean Rome, not considered as pagan, but as the prolongation of the ancient power in the papal form. Rome, pagan and papal, is regarded as one power. “The literal Babylon was the beginner and supporter of tyranny and idolatry... This city and its whole empire were taken by the Persians under Cyrus; the Persians were subdued by the Macedonians, and the Macedonians by the Romans; so that Rome succeeded to the power of old Babylon. And it was her method to adopt the worship of the false deities she had conquered; so that by her own act she became the heiress and successor of all the Babylonian idolatry, and of all that was introduced into it by the immediate successors of Babylon, and consequently of all the idolatry of the earth.” Rome, or “mystical Babylon,” is “that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (Rev 17:18). Hope this helps. (Easton Bible Dictionary) prayon
|52||Why do some Bible omit Job Chapter 7?||Job||prayon||167109|
|Greeting and welcome to the forum. I'm not sure which versions you are talking about. All the bibles I have include Job chapter 7.... Please let me know what versions and I will try to answer your question. prayon|
|53||Why can't he tell anyone?||Matt 8:4||prayon||166876|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum! Miracles tend to draw public attention and Christ did not want the publicity the miracle would draw to hinder His ministry. However, that was exactly what happened according to Mark 1:45 (When the man left, he began to talk freely. He spread his story so widely that Jesus could no longer enter any city openly. Instead, he stayed in places where he could be alone. But people still kept coming to him from everywhere). prayon|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum! You didn't say what aspect of money you wanted references to..
In reference to giving:
Mal 3:10 "Bring one-tenth of your income into the storehouse so that there may be food in my house. Test me in this way," says the LORD of Armies. "See if I won't open the windows of heaven for you and flood you with blessings.
2Co 9:7 Each of you should give whatever you have decided. You shouldn't be sorry that you gave or feel forced to give, since God loves a cheerful giver.
On relation to faith:
Luk 16:10-11 Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with a lot. Whoever is dishonest with very little is dishonest with a lot. Therefore, if you can't be trusted with wealth that is often used dishonestly, who will trust you with wealth that is real?
Phi 4:19 My God will richly fill your every need in a glorious way through Christ Jesus.
Pro 11:28 Whoever trusts his riches will fall, but righteous people will flourish like a green leaf.
Love of money:
Heb 13:5 Don't love money. Be happy with what you have because God has said, "I will never abandon you or leave you."
1Ti 6:10 Certainly, the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people who have set their hearts on getting rich have wandered away from the Christian faith and have caused themselves a lot of grief.
Ecc 5:10 Whoever loves money will never be satisfied with money. Whoever loves wealth will never be satisfied with more income. Even this is pointless.
Psa 37:16 The little that the righteous person has is better than the wealth of many wicked people.
Hope these help. prayon
|55||does the holy spirit dwell in us daily?||John 14:16||prayon||166826|
|Greetings James Glenn and welcome to the forum!
1) According to John 14:16 Jesus said that He would give us a comforter and He would be with us forever. The Holy Spirit is that comforter. However, the Spirit is not with all men but only those who are believers according to John 14:17 ( The world cannot accept him, because it doesn't see or know him).
2) The Holy Spirit lives within us. We were not able to receive the Holy Spirit until Jesus sent Him to us at Pentecost. The Holy Spirit was with them in the OT but He lives in us now.
3) Adam was created in the image of God just as we are today.
4) First we must define what exactly a prophet is. According to Webster:
1. One that foretells future events; a predicter; a foreteller.
2. In Scripture, a person illuminated, inspired or instructed by God to announce future events; as Moses, Elijah, David, Isaiah, ect.
You are correct in saying that that is a false statement. The scripture reference is Acts 2:16-17: "In the last days, God says, I will pour my Spirit on everyone. Your sons and daughters will speak what God has revealed. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will dream dreams. In those days I will pour my Spirit on my servants, on both men and women. They will speak what God has revealed." This scripture therefore clearly reveals that there will be prophets in the end times which is what we are in today. prayon
|56||Christians with demon oppression||Bible general Archive 3||prayon||166538|
|Greetings Kanchi, After reading over the replies to your questions and I didn't see one of the main scriptures listed that I think your friend needs.
From what you have said I believe that your friend is lacking the faith she needs to stand strong. Jesus tells us in Luke 10:19, "I have given you the authority to trample snakes and scorpions and to destroy the enemy's power. Nothing will hurt you." Mark 16: 17-18 also tells us "These are the miraculous signs that will accompany believers: They will use the power and authority of my name to force demons out of people. They will speak new languages. They will pick up snakes, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them. They will place their hands on the sick and cure them."
Your friend must know beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is the child of a king and has authority over the demons that are trying to oppress her. She must speak in faith and then know that her word must be obeyed by the demons. She must know that she knows that she knows that she has the power that Jesus was speaking of. When the devil mocks her she must know that they will try anything to make her doubt but she MUST NOT DOUBT! Whe she has the faith that she has the power to cast out demons they will leave and the oppression will no longer be there. prayon

|58||Differences in meaning of Romans 2:12 ?||Rom 2:12||prayon||165745|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum! First let me say that for new Christians I like to recommend the God's Word translation. It is much easier to understand or at least to refer to when you are reading another version and don't understand what you are reading.
As for Romas 2:12: John Gills Exposition on the Bible puts it this way " For as many as have sinned without law,.... This is an instance of the strict justice of God, and proves him to be no respecter of persons; for the Gentiles, who were "without law", the written law of Moses, not without the law of nature in their breasts, nor without some civil laws and statutes of their own; inasmuch as they "sinned" against the God of nature, and the law and light of nature".
There are many people who have never heard the Word of Jesus and do not know His laws. They shall be judged on more or less their morals and how they conducted themselves. On the other hand those who have had access to the Word and God's laws will be held accountable for their greater knowledge.
In other words we are not held accountable for God's laws that we do not know. We will be judged on our hearts. However, if we have heard the law we will be held in higher accountability. prayon
|59||see to let you know the end is near ?||Matt 24:6||prayon||165742|
|Greetings and welcome to the forum! Shythiyl's answer was great but I want to add some more.
The first prophecy of the end times came from Jesus Himself in Matt 24:1-2 when He said "There shall not be left here one stone upon the other that shall not be thrown down". This was fulfilled in 70AD when the armies of Titus surrounded Jerusalem and destroyed the temple.
IN the Olivet discourse in Matt 24 and 25 Jesus gave many other prophesies of what was to come in the end times.
Ezek 38 and 39 talk about how Russia would become a major power in the end times and how it would be involved in the end days.
James5:1-5 says that in the final days riches would be accumulated by some but would not produce happiness but instead misery and heartache. There will also be conflict between labor and management. We will also witness and increase of pleasure seeking.
Daniel 12:4 in addition to speaking of transportation talks about an increase of knowledge. It was estimated that between Noahs day and the year 1800 knowledge doubled once. Today knowledge doubles every 10 - 15 years.
1Tim 4:1-2 talks about the rise of the occult and that people shall depart fromt the faith and give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of the devil. These include fortune tellers, witches, palm and tea leaf readers, psychics, occultists, sorcerers, horoscopes and astrology.
2Tim 3:1-5 says that in the last days distressing times will come. For people will be lovers of themselves, blasphemers, lovers of money, boasters, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, and without natural affection. It also says many will hold to an outward form of godliness but denying it's power.
Wickedness will also flourish. There will be sexual perversions, evil imaginations, and violence.
In summarry these are the predicted signs of the end days - some of which Shythiyl has already mentioned:
1) Return of the Jews to the homeland and Isreal becomes a nation again.
2) The Jews recapture the Old City of Jerusalem (1967)
3) Rise of Russia as a powerful nation and enemy of Israel
4) The Arab confederation against the new state of Isreal
5) Rise of a military power in the Orient that can field and army of 200 million.
6) REvivla of old Roman Empire in the form of a 10 nation confederacy
7) Revival of the dark occult practices of ancient Babylon
8) Immense turn to drugs
9) increase of international revolution
10) increase of wars
11) increase of earthquakes
12) increase of famine (due to population explosion)
13) coming of plagues and diseases
14) increase of pollution
15) departure of many Christian Churches from the historic truths of Christiajnity
16) Move toward a one-world religion
17) move towards a one-world government
18) decline of the US as a major world power
19) increase in lawlessness
20) decline of the family unit
Rev 7:1-3 talks of weather changes. Jesus Himself said there would be strange events in the sky. Warnings, eveil oments and portents in the sun, moon, and stars and down on earth nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. (luke 21:25-26).
Some additional scriptures to look at are:
Luke 17:17-37, 21:7-28
In 1Thess each chapter has a reference to te end times, 2Thess emphasizes it even more.
Hope this helps. prayon
