|Do you read the new testament?|
|62||Who are GOD's chosen people?||Bible general Archive 4||Val||219667|
|I am not sure I understand your question. The Jews are God's chosen people. They had a specific purpose in God's plan and still do. Chosen for salvation is a topic completely different. It depends on what perspective your question comes from. You are correct God called Abram out of the land of Ur and then his descendant Jacob's name was changed to Israel of which we call them Israelites. They are called Jews in the New Testament.|
|63||Salvation for the Gentiles||Bible general Archive 4||Val||219666|
|Let me bring the following to the table. I don't have a lot of time so you will have to look up the scriptures for yourself by searching these characters of the bible. Abraham - God told Abraham in you all the nations of the earth will be blessed. By looking at this one statement we have drawn our conclusion that He was speaking about Christ Jesus. We know there is only one name that was given through which men may be saved according to Peter and that was Jesus. Salvation therefore came through Abraham's righteous line because of the promise God made to Abraham. What is this blessing? We draw this conclusion; that men may be saved, have eternal life through Jesus. Now the question is; is He talking to just the 12 tribes of Israel or is He including all people of the earth? From Revelation 7:9 we draw the conclusion that he was speaking of all mankind as we see it was all tribes, peoples, and tongues in verse 9 before the throne.
Abraham had a miracle son at an old age with his elderly wife. The son's name was Isaac, the son of promise.
Follow Isaac's line down and it takes you to David. In the book of Ruth we see Ruth was a gentile so this would enable Jesus to be the kinsman redeemer for the gentiles as well as the jews.
I believe Mary's line also came through Abraham.
So we come full circle. Now what does the verse mean to Abraham; in you all the nations of the earth will be blessed mean?
Is this promise only to the 12 tribes of Israel?
First the blessing means life for those who believe (have saving faith) in Christ Jesus.
Second, the blessing is for every tribe, nation and tongue of the earth.
So Abraham and his descendants looked forward to the cross. I believe my friend gave you the Isaiah passage of the suffering servant which is a picture of the cross.
Maybe some of the others can elaborate on any questions you may have. Merry Christmas!
|64||Salvation for the Gentiles||Bible general Archive 4||Val||219632|
|God from the beginning offered salvation to the gentiles. We see this in the third chapter of Genesis. Abel was righteous, Cain was not. As time went on all mankind became exceedingly wicked except for Noah found in Genesis the sixth chapter. Thus the flood came and mankind began again with Noah and his three sons. Salvation means believing God. In the old testament people were saved by looking forward to the birth of Christ. In the present people are saved by looking back to the cross. Mankind has always had an opportunity to believe in the one true God. In the new testament we see the first gentile convert is Cornelius. You can find this in the book of Acts. Before that time people became what we call proselytes to the Jewish faith in Jehovah God. Christ broke down that dividing wall.|
|65||Is the 4th Seal for good or bad?||Rev 6:16||Val||219631|
|In reading the chapter in its context we see from verse 16 and 17 the following Rev. 6:16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb;
Rev 6:17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"
In the bible we see that God will one day punish evil. This passage deals with that promise.
|66||Lunch vs meal in Luke 11.37||Luke 11:37||Val||219548|
|There is a multitude of commentaries at Preceptaustin.org. What you are asking requires a lot of research. There are many resources at this website.|
|67||meaning/purpose of life||Ps 73:25||Val||219547|
|The bible tells us the meaning and purpose of life. As you ready and study and apply the bible each day you will find new meaning and purpose. As you are lead by the Spirit of God you may one day speak to a lost person about the love and grace of God through His son Jesus Christ. Tomorrow you may see a person in neeed and you may be asked to supply that need. It may be a smile to a lonely heart. Everyday living in the spirit will open up new ways to share God's love with others. We are his hands, his feet, his people. The only gospel some people will ever read is the lives of those who follow Him. Follow Him well. Romans 15:1-6|
|68||men and women as friends||John 13:35||Val||219546|
|It is not a good idea to become emotionally involved with a person of the opposite sex other than your spouse. This type of intimacy is supposed to be reserved for the spouse. In the marriage vows one takes the vow before God to forsake all others and cleave to your spouse. Since this marriage covenant is made between two people and God ordained marriage, breaking this covenant is serious. 1 Corinthians 6:12|
|69||moses and pharoh or book of titus||2 Kings||Val||219418|
|The Apostle Paul mentored Timothy.|
|70||Clarification of 1 Cor 14:34 verse||1 Cor 14:34||Val||219376|
|The context of the chapter is those speaking in a tongue. The instructions say there is not to be confusion and that is what they have because there is not an interpreter of the ones speaking in tongues. Also they are not all to speak in tongues at one time as is prevalent in some churches today. Men are also told to keep silent if there is no interpreter. The subject is speaking in tongues. When Paul instructs people not to do certain things the opposite of the instruction may be going on for there to be a need for the instruction. Confusion can be caused by both men and women so I believe one application is for there to be order and a spiirit of learning and worship when one goes into the house of the Lord by being slow to speak and quick to hear.|
|71||Who are "the least of these?"||Matt 25:40||Val||219375|
|That is a good point. Have a great Thanksgiving.|
|72||Who are "the least of these?"||Matt 25:40||Val||219367|
|I believe this judgment is on deeds. Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.
I believe there are degrees of punishment. Matt 11:22 "Nevertheless I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.
|73||no more animal sacrifice||Heb 8:13||Val||218863|
|Dear YenisaRap, I am currently studying Jeremiah. I believe the following verses shed some light on your question. Jer 33:14 'Behold, days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
Jer 33:15 'In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth.
Jer 33:16 'In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety; and this is the name by which she will be called: the LORD is our righteousness.'
Jer 33:17 "For thus says the LORD, 'David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel;
Jer 33:18 and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings and to prepare sacrifices continually.'
This is a promise made to Israel in the time of Jeremiah. Obviously, sacrifices were honored by God when they were done in His timing and in His ways. There are many things we do not understand. This is probably one of those topics I have never heard discussed but is it in the bible? Yes it is. Obviously God has a plan for the future. We in our finite minds cannot comprehend it so confusion comes in as to the why. We only learn the answers as we continue to study God's word. Then as we study we realize how much we do not know and we have different questions. It is a fascinating journey is it not? Good Question.
|74||"Women being silent"||Gal 3:28||Val||218400|
|Dear John, thank you for your welcome. There is an ongoing debate in christendom on this subject. I understand your thoughts and appreciate that we can discuss this civilly. I respectfully disagree with your conclusions for the reasons I outlined in my post. We can agree to disagree and move on. It is clear that people disagree on many topics thus we have many denominations. It is not my wish to debate this topic. Thank you again for your friendship. You are a good brother in the Lord.|
|75||"Women being silent"||Gal 3:28||Val||218383|
|Thank you justme. I appreciate your encouragement. Blessings to you and your wife.|
|76||"Women being silent"||Gal 3:28||Val||218381|
|Dear John, I have read gotquestions position on this before. However, thank you for your concern. I still believe women can preach if they are called. I stand by my post.|
|77||"Women being silent"||Gal 3:28||Val||218374|
|Who did Jesus chose to appear to when He arose from the dead? He first appeared to this person and told this person to go tell the disciples. What an honor.
Holman Bible Dictionary
Also from the old testament we see Huldah:
HULDAH (huhl’ duh) Personal name meaning, “mole.” Prophetess, the wife of Shallum (2 Kings 22:14). She was consulted after Josiah the king of Judah saw a copy of the Book of the Law found as preparations were being made to restore the Temple. She prophesied judgment for the nation but a peaceful death for Josiah the king. See Josiah.
11 When the king heard the words of the book of the law, he tore his clothes.
12 Then he commanded Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Achbor son of Micaiah, Shaphan the court secretary, and the king’s servant Asaiah:
13 “Go and inquire of the Lord for me, the people, and all Judah about the instruction in this book that has been found. For great is the Lord’s wrath that is kindled against us because our ancestors have not obeyed the words of this book in order to do everything written about us.” 2 Ch 34:14–21
Huldah’s Prophecy of Judgment
2 Kings 22:11-14 So Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam, Achbor, Shaphan, and Asaiah went to the prophetess Huldah, wife of Shallum son of Tikvah, son of Harhas, 2 Ch 34:22 reads Hasrah keeper of the wardrobe. She lived in Jerusalem in the Second District. They spoke with her.
The Lord's best friends were Martha and Mary and their brother. I would call this an inner circle.
Women have always been used by our Lord. It is only when we look to Him for guidance does He put those people in our paths to direct us to Him. If we put Him in a box we may miss out on all that He has for us.
Many, many women serve as pastors who preach the true gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Many, many men as well as women are false prophets or pastors who preach a different gospel.
I had rather hear a women preach the true gospel any day than a man or woman preach a false gospel.
If you don't want to listen to a women you have a choice to go somewhere else. Why knock someone who will answer to God for their actions? Its between them and God.
|78||Not even for some fresh air???||Lev 21:12||Val||217982|
|Verse 10 through 12. The high priest was not allowed to become ritually unclean, even at the death of his father or mother. His duties in the sanctuary could not be interrupted. For his exalted position before God, the high priest sometimes paid a high personal price. Reference book is the Nelson study bible. Personal note. As I understand it there was a rotation of priests. I am not understanding the part about going outside for fresh air. Do you think it was musty in there or something? I don't see preachers going outside for fresh air until their service is over. Same concept maybe?|
|79||Intersesery Prayer||Gen 1:1||Val||217981|
|Do a character study on the life of Moses. He interceded for Israel as he led them in the wilderness.|
|80||The end part of Jonah?||Jonah||Val||217744|
|Jonah seemed to suffer from depression. This is a remarkable story that shows that the Lord is concerned about the people of Nineveh who were ignorant of Him. It shows that the Lord is concerned about all people even those who do terrible things. He ask Jonah to preach to them and many were saved. It is a beautiful story. Jonah as a prophet was to obey. It shows that the Lord can use all kinds of people for His glory.|
