    1 Thessalonians 5v18 is right family, thank you (giving thanks) I wasn't aware of this verse as well. I tend to highlight verses/scriptures that truly hold value to my day to day walk. So, I am giving thanks to The Highest for you sharing that highlight with me.

    In Hebrews 4v12, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." speaks nothing but facts. So, all of the bible is alive and active and also inspired by The Most Highest Power as it explains that in 2 Timothy 3v16; "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" Regardless of those individuals that tempered with the Holy words of our Father. He still is so majestic that He is ahead of that lol. God is mind blowing family. Keep up the great work, it is all about seeking Jesus Christ of Nazareth, fearing the Most Highest, and giving our whole hearts to The Holy Trinity. Every day we must have a sincere heart to heart with The Holy Trinity and even within that Jesus is helping us keep that relationship up. Like it says in Hebrews 7v25; "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."

    The God we serve is beautiful family. Let us continue to strive to protect our salvation and also Him. Glory to The God of Abraham and Praises to The Lord of Lords Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

    Peace, Love and Blessings within and without Family.

  • I AM THAT I AM - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 7 months ago
    Yes, indeed it is. And Praise THE MOST HIGHEST. I am thankful because I was not aware of this parallel passage. I love finding parallels in the scripture. It's like finding hidden gold in the bible but far times more valuable than gold of course. Glory to The God of Israel.
  • Lodebar - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 7 months ago
    Thank you so much for replying...I definitely am called under "helps".
  • Bennymkje - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 7 months ago
    Hi Lodebar,

    God's calling is consistent. Some are called to be prophets to which the name Jeremiah is pre-eminent. (Je.1:5) Some are called to be helps, teachers etc., Ephesians remind us of the same. The Bible being god-breathed it bears names of holy men crediting them as authors, more accurate would be to call them as having taken dictation from the Holy Spirit. Conversations quote unquote therefore owe their truth to the Spirit.

    St Paul writes as to how the Spirit helps us with our prayers.(Ro.8:27-28) The same holds true with dictating what transpired between parties where the Spirit is setting down precisely the truth, ("Thy word is truth"). For example Jonah praying from the belly of the fish only the Spirit could do justice. So faith is essential in order to understand how several parts in the God document relate to one another. Literal approach will not be of much help.

    Hello All in Christ,

    Is EPHESIANS 1:4 in any way related to JEREMIAH 1:5.

    Thank you for your reply

    Leviticus 18:22Leviticus 18:22 (KJV)

    22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Leviticus 18:22 (KJV)

    Hopes this helps you
  • Pastorwsm1 - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 1 year ago
    Leviticus 18:22

    Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

    Leviticus 20:13

    If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    Romans 1:21-28

    21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    These are few verses maybe they will help.

    Hello, J.W. Morgan.

    It is very likely that the climate did change after the flood. The surface of the earth was most likely very different. Mountain ranges may have been pushed up on land and sea, which would affect climate. The waters that were above the earth held in the firmament had burst open. So, these waters were no longer intact, which would allow much more sunlight and ultraviolet light. May have affected the oxygen levels in the air and also the air pressure. Also, the changes in the atmosphere would produce storms, hurricanes, etc. that did not occur pre-flood. These would have an affect on humanity after the flood.

    Ezekiel found a door chapter 8 Behind the door was all manner of dead and Evil and idols it was. The Temple whwith the leaders inside take heed among yourselves and I will take heed with myself be careful God is not mocked. I heard a radio preacher tell a lady the reason men didn't live as long after Noah's Ark was because of climate change I think he sent that woman on a road without the power of God I pray she recovers from the voice of Dead m e n and what do you say

    Hi. This is a two-fold question. Was it okay that Puah and Shiphrah lied to the Pharaoh? Or was it wrong like all other lies? I know that if they hadn't lied, Moses would not have been born, but it still seems wrong.
  • Peter halliday - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    Sure and I will second that. We all are given free will but Marke there are also people who are evil doers without knowing but if they come to the Lord and Faith they can always ask for forgiveness. The Lord loves all his creation even the most heathen. What they must do is come to him and Ask. That is what the Lord asks. Like in this pandemic we see the vaccine. Now if you look at the word Temptation Marke if you exhaust this word you will see that Rebeling against God is in fact to experiment on diseases when the Lord asks you to come to him. 2 peter 2 9 Temptation. Now I prefer to commit to the Father of all creation so he can call me his child. I come to think how many have took this vaccine and still haven't turned to the Father.

    5043 tknon - properly, a child; (figuratively) anyone living in full dependence on the heavenly Father, i.e. fully (willingly) relying upon the Lord in glad submission. This prompts God to transform them into His likeness.
  • Marke - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    Some Christians believe that whatever happens only happens because God designed for it to happen and that nothing happens that is not God's will to happen. I do not agree.
  • Peter halliday - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    Yes my Dear brother Marke. This is true, but why say this? We are all sinners in this world but when we find the Father and Jesus and try to walk in righteousness thru FAITH we are all forgiven. The Lord knows all mans (444) Hearts. Even yours.

    When the adulteress women was found guilty what did Jesus say? He said let him who has never sinned cast the first stone. Now Jesus who had never sinned, did he accuse this women or put her to Death? No he forgave her of her sins and asked her to sin no more.

    Jesus came into her life and if this happened to you would you Sin again or at least try to walk righteous in approval of the Lord?

    Romans 3:25.

    It is up to US all not to accuse or judge but to Praise the Gospel and TEACH it so all become touched by our FAITH thus trying to do no wrong anymore and walk so we and others are irreproachable (423). Blameless, Unrebukeable.

    Blessed Marke Brother.

    Nothing can happen that takes God by surprise but lots of things do happen that are contrary to the will of God.
  • Peter halliday on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    Hello Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ. I am very hopeful from all your comments. I am sure that we all share Gods preferred Will. Spiritual Vision. Disciples and to BUILD DISCIPLES. TEACH.

    The NT teaches the will of God on two "levels": 1012/boul ("God's immutable will" which includes the providential presetting of all physical circumstances), and 2307/thlma ("desire, God's preferred-will") which centers in choices.

    [1012 (boul) focuses on the will (plan) of God for physical circumstances. 1012/boul ("a resolved plan") underlines the pre-set, unalterable nature of the plan. When used of God,1012 (boul) refers to Him authorizing all the physical scenes of life in His perfect wisdom and love.]

    Nothing happens outside of God's plan (boul). People are often out of God's2307 (thlma), but never outside of God's1012 (boul)! See also1012 (boul). Both terms are used for example in Eph 1:11,

    "In whom (Christ), we indeed (2532/ka) were divinely lot-cast, having been pre-horizoned (predestined), according to purpose (4286/prthesis, 'providence'), of the one energizing all things according to the boul-plan [arising out] of His thelma-plan."

    [ Eph 1:11 states believers are "in Him" (Christ) and chosen by Him for a "divine-lot inheritance" (Gk text), i.e. our "divine-lot inheritance, having been pre-horizoned, according to (divine) purpose of the one energizing all things (neuter plural, ta panta), according to the counsel (1012/boul) of His will (2307/thlma)."]

    Eph 1:11 conveys God's1012 (boul) as naturally proceeding from His2307 (thlma). The broader term (2307/thlma) includes the Lord's generous offers of love to all people. Each person therefore must make meaningful (undetermined) choices - in physical circumstances He arranged in His perfect wisdom before creation ( Jn 1:3).

    ["God's2307 (thlma) is more inclusive than1012 (boul), and centers on choices. God's 1012/boul ('plan') predestines all the physical scenes of life.

    Blessed

    Hello Ronette, I will pray with you for Catholics. I know that the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, (which is what Paul preached), is read repeatedly throughout the years of a Catholic who attends Mass regularly. I will pray that the Word of God read to them will take root in their hearts by the power of the Holy Spirit. I will pray that the Spirit will open their minds to understanding the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and believe it and in Him more deeply.

    I agree that there is much error taught in the Roman Catholic Church, however, it is not alone in teaching error. There is error and false doctrines taught across the board in Christian denominations. Each believer should examine what is taught in their own denominations and discover if it is taught in the Scripture in the Spirit of the Words of God.
  • Ronnette - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    My fellow believer:

    Ephesians 2:19

    Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    1 Corinthians 4:1

    Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.

    1 Corinthians 4:4

    For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.

    1 Corinthians 4:5

    Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

    1 Corinthians 6:2

    Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

    Let us grow in grace and in charity for the Glory of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Ronnette - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    My Sister in Christ Sea:

    Thank you for your kind response.

    "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment." 1 Corinthians 1:10 KJV

    "Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye." 1 Corinthians 16:1 KJV

    The WORD OF GOD is so powerful that speaks to everyone that believes.

    Philippians 4:8

    Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    Philippians 4:9

    Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

    Romans 15:13

    Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

    I love to know you as a daughter of God and a Saint here on earth.

    I pray for all saints. Our encouragement to one another makes us stronger here on earth while waiting to see Jesus Christ in the clouds.
  • Sea - In Reply on Ephesians 1 - 2 years ago
    Hi,my sweet and precious sister in JESUS,Romnette.Your comment on Ephesians 1,has brought me so much joy,peace and hope.And confirmation of the great love and wisdom that our LORD GOD and our LORDJESUS has for us that believe in Him and follow His HOLY WORD according to the kjv of the Bible.For you my precious sister in JESUS,are the KEY and most Important part and confirmation of the enlightened Wisdom that JESUS shared with me some months ago.At that time I didn't understand why our most HOLY AND PRECIOUS LORD GOD and JESUS was enlightening me with such Wisdom.But Glory be to GOD for this Blessed website!For you see presently, I personally do not know anyone that is being mislead by the False Doctrines of the catholics.But unfortunately I did know someone being mislead by the False Doctrines of the mormans and I am currently having to deal with a landlord who's mother is Big time into the False Doctrines of the jehovas witnesses.But being Blessed with the True and HOLY WORD of GOD thru this amazing website.Some times the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD encourages me to further research certain aspects of HIS HOLY WORD.Now I know and understand YOU-Romnette and Your HOLY desire to lead your catholic friends and family to the Truth of HIS HOLY WORD that comes shining thru from the kjv of the Holy Bible is the reason HE lead me to the enlightened wisdom and Holy knowledge of just how Wicked the doctrines of the catholics have been in thepast,from (the beginning) thru today.Its really very sad and I'm sure those people that practice as catholics know nothing of their true roots.Much less do they or most of us whom believe and live our lives in accordance to the kjv have NO Idea about the Evil anathema's that have been pronounced by all the popes including today's,against their own congregation of believers if they dare to believe the way that we do.These are also against us.Please Google "The Council of Trent".And know that I am praying for and praising GOD for you!!!

    Hi Mary!

    I hope this will help.

    1. Act 1:9-11. It tells us Jesus will return the same way he left.

    2. Go to 1 these 4:14-18

    Here it decribes how you will know Jesus when he comes. The most important part is we will met him in the skies. Jesus will NOT touch the earth. It is very plain on that.

    Got to Matthew 24:29-31. Also here it tells us he does not come in secret. When he comes the trumpets of God will blow and shouts from heaven. His Angels will come to Earth.

    Go to 1 corin 15:51-52

    John 14:1-11 this should also help. As long as you seek for Jesus's truth he will always show you the way.

    God bless my friend hope this helps. If you need more please let me know. Thanks.
