Please tell me why NT passages such as these do NOT apply to you?
“… wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to (eternal)
destruction … narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which
leads to (eternal) life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)
The truth of the narrow way has not at all been taught in its full reality.
There are many NT verses which prove how narrow the way really is!
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord’, shall enter the kingdom
of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven …
I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you (approved of you); depart
from Me, you who practice lawlessness (sin)!’ ”...
Believers We can Command Hurricane Irma in Jesus's Name to "Quiet! and Be still!" OR sit back and watch the destruction. All our choice!!
Jesus==He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. Mark 4:39
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12
Do you have faith?? If so use it!!!
Unbelief kills the works of faith!!
Jesus==And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. Matthew 13:58
Why do you think God will do what He told you to do?? Believers are given great power!! Now believe and speak to the storm in...
Hebrews 12:1 "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us..."
I was just wondering today what is the besetting sin?
What is it that you know that we must overcome?
As I mused on this, I began to think that it could only be doubt.
Israel could not enter in because of their unbelief.
God had spoken a word, and they gave up on it.
Eve fell for the trap of " Hath God said..." She couldn't believe unto the end..' ,,,she doubted God.
She did not overcome the voice...
So as it says "the" sin...is it one sin that we all have a...
Are there any prophecies out there we can actually believe? I am wondering about the times and the seasons and it is like we are not hearing much from God. Plenty of speculation out there, but nothing I can believe as of God.
When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. - Deuteronomy 18:22
Presumptuously, Zadown in the Hebrew; interpreted - pride, insolence, presumptuousness, arrogance
There are a lot of people prophecying things of the future, including the Lord's coming, but they are doing it from the spirit of their own ego, and God is not in the word they...
Freewill usually refers to the human capacity to choose between good and evil. The idea of freewill has problems on several levels.
It is a poor description - a better way to describe our choice is between being selfish or community-minded. Do we focus on meeting our own needs before our neighbor or are we altruistic?
Also, before the Fall, humans could only choose between good things (they did not think selfishly); afterwards, we put self first, which indicates that we could no longer choose between good things because every choice we made from that point was selfish.
Christ died for the community - everything he did was community-minded. He instructed us to be community-minded and gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us, which is...
1 Cor 2:7-8
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,
8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
I take these scriptures to mean exactly what they say. Paul's "hidden in God" message of grace was not known before Jesus gave it to Paul. Other wise this verse is not true.
There are 7 suicides in the Bible and All were spiritual failures. It is the ultimate act of UNBELIEF and disowning God and leads to loss of salvation as these passages clearly warn us about.
Matthew 10:33 NIV
 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.
Matthew 24:13 NIV
 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
Luke 8:13 NIV
 Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away.
Luke 14:29-30 NIV
 For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him,  saying, 'This fellow began to build...
Hello; and welcome to the very first book of the Bible.
I'm attempting a systematic, home-spun commentary practically verse by
verse from the creation of the cosmos to Joseph's burial in Egypt.
As of today's date, I'm 73 years old; and an on-going student of the Bible
since 1968 via sermons, seminars, lectures, Sunday school classes, radio
Bible programs, and various authors of a number of Bible-related books.
Forty-nine years of Bible under my belt hasn't made me an authority; but
they've at least made me competent enough to compose this commentary.
Barring emergencies, accidents, vacations, unforeseen circumstances,
and/or insurmountable distractions, database errors, difficulties, computer
Can anyone bring me up to date on what signs are happening in the world today regarding bible prophecy end times. There is much media surrounding September 24th, as there was last year and the year before, yet still nothing happened.. further more, many Christians believe in less then 10 or 15 years Jesus will return for his church, are we really that close until our Lord comes back,
