Women Preachers's comment on 2020-10-11 02:36:28:

Book of Joel chapter 3

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit UPON all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

29 And also UPON the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

This is a prophesy of these days; preceding the Caught Up of the church meeting Jesus in the clouds.

Th Lord will use women and handmaidens too.

Let's not try to tie God's hands from fulfilling prophesy. I've watched her ministry, and men attend those meetings too.

At the Bema Judgment Seat of Christ, HE will hand out the rewards or loss of rewards to the believers. It's between Him and all those that preached and taught in his Name. We do not get to vote on that. Ever.

Anyone doing anything for Jesus: their works will pass through the fire of burning up wood, hay, and stubble.

The question of woman that teach, according to verse 12. Are woman that are teaching like Joyce Meyer and many more and those in prophetic ministry like Cyndy Jacobs, are thy all wrong and outside God's will?


Carleton's comment on 2020-08-12 03:22:37:

I have heard a thought that at least warms my heart when thinking about the time period after death and before the Marriage Supper.

Some Christian cultures as folks are coming to a wedding have an meal or gathering perhaps the evening before. Because of long distance traveling the hour of the gathering is somewhat flexible to allow as many guest as possible to arrive. The guest arrive and mingle together in the fellowship of the Saints and likely speak of in a calm happiness the events that are so soon to take place while waiting on more guests to arrive.


Grace39s Reply Re After-Life Judgements's comment on 2020-08-11 23:11:45:

Hello Ms White,

I don't know exactly what happens after a person dies, but while I've examined some NDE stories, I believe what God inspired in the Bible. Yours is an intelligent question. You clearly see that the act of being sent to either Heaven or Hell is in itself a judgement. So true because it's sound logic

The word "judgement" in Revelation 20 is a direct word-for-word translation of the ancient Greek word for judgement. It's unfortunate for this chapter because the old Greek meaning must've been different. The important key when translating is to translate the meaning - so word-for-word is not always meaningful between different languages of different cultures at different times. (The KJV isn't a literal translation, btw).The meaning of 'judgement' has been lost because no translator has ever been trained, tested &certified by an independent board, the way NAATI translators need to be before translating modern languages for the U.N. So, these so-called translators really didn't know what a dead ancient language sounds like and they can't be 100% sure of it's grammar

But the true meaning can only be "sentence". Just like modern courts, Judgement Day is Sentencing Day to send body&soul to the 2nd death in that Lake

Rev 20:11-15 >The "dead" are souls, in resurrected bodies, who haven't heard of our God and/or did but didn't want to know. It likely isn't believers too because Jesus gave us eternal life (John 3:16) &we do have a renewed spirit because we are born again (1 Peter 1:23), so we can't be called "dead". But we could also be present on this Sentence Dlay just to see it because some religious leaders& scholars now teach a newer idea, since the 19th or 20th C, that there is a separate judgement for believers regarding the quality of our works - that's based simply on 1 or 2 verses about a "seat" of Christ (Rom 14:10). That debate isn't relevant here, but I'll just squeeze in that the text also refers to a judgement of everyone, dead or living (Rom 14:9)


Adam's comment on 2020-08-11 23:07:52:

I know its popular to say that at funerals and to comfort those mourning, but I don't believe it's true. They might be in a 'better place' however, just not heaven, because all must wait for judgment. Also, it says the dead will rise to meet Jesus in the air. I'm sure it will be spiritual bodies, not physical ones that have rotted. It wouldn't make sense otherwise if people went straight to heaven to then go back to earth to an old body just to raise up and meet Jesus in the clouds, just for the ceremony of it. So, both scripture and logic refute that idea. Most people believe this because of Jesus telling the other guy on the cross that he would be in paradise. First, Jesus can pick whomever he wants to have special treatment- it doesn't automatically mean 100% of others will follow suit and ignore the other scripture. Secondly, paradise may not necessarily mean heaven. Paradise could be an intermediary place of rest or waiting. Just some thoughts. No one knows 100% until it happens. We just have scripture and logic.


What to expect during the Rapture for Believers who are ready's comment on 2020-08-11 22:05:17:

Briefly, if we have not been Caught Up in the clouds to meet Jesus yet:

Our bodies or our ashes, remain in the ground.

Our spirit and soul ascend to heaven to await "the Rapture", when our bodies will ascend into the clouds to be transformed into our eternal bodies that will never get sick or die. If our earthly bodies were not complete or marred in some way: our new bodies will be perfect; body , soul, spirit.

All souls are Mine, says God in scripture.

Once the dead in Christ are rejoined; then those alive on earth will ascend next To meet Jesus and everyone else in the clouds.

Be watching for Jesus every day.

I like the Bible because it tell us about God


mary m white's comment on 2020-08-11 15:24:25:

The pastor this morning said your spirit and soul go immediately to heaven. What I do not get is.... if spirits go immediately to hell or heaven, then why is there a judgement day? You would already be where you are. The white thrown judgement is after the 1000 year reign, so would God pull em out of hell to send em back to hell after judgement? and bring us from heaven to go back to heaven after the judgement? Please help me to understand what happens after death.


G S ALM's comment on 2020-08-11 01:40:49:

-Hi Jonaton , thank you for your comments, Please don't take this the wrong way, but saying you guess or think the answer, is not the answer im looking for, I found the Koni Greek word for ransom, means a" corresponding to" instead of /exchange price, (Strong's Greek ).

Hi Jonaton Thank you for your comments, I hope i don't offend you by saying, that you comments I think or I guess , is your opinion

and I appreciate that. but I'm looking for exact scriptural understanding, as the Kone Greek for Ransom at 1 Tim 2:6 translates as " Corresponding sacrifice" (Strong's Greek).

Am i right to assume Jesus paid ransom, that corresponds to the life given up by Adam that plunged us into sin and death and Jesus bought us back by giving up his perfect life.


Christians Are The Ransomed's comment on 2020-08-09 21:32:01:

Isaiah 51:10

Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?

Jeremiah 31:11

For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.

Hosea 13:14

I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.

Matthew 20:28

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mark 10:45

For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

1 Timothy 2:6

Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.


Jonatan's comment on 2020-08-09 13:38:44:

I think maybe you think wrong about the word ransom, you can look it up in Webster's Dictionary from 1828. But some things are hard to understand, we need revelation from God. It's good that you're trying to understand, search and you'll find.


Luke's comment on 2020-08-07 08:56:11:

Its because they like to ignore these little nuggets from 1 Corinthians 14

36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

They conveniently look over where Paul says everything he wrote are commandments from God and that God told Paul what to write.


Jonatan's comment on 2020-08-07 06:42:44:


Look at the last part of this verse:

Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

1 Pet 2:22, Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

I guess it's like this, I'm a sinner, I deserve to die, Jesus did no sin, He paid the penalty for my sin when He died on the cross, I guess that's the same as He paid the ransom, so that a sinner like I could go free, He paid the price.

God bless you.


G S ALM's comment on 2020-08-05 03:32:42:

thank you for your reply , i don't think it answers my question, hope you dont mind if i askit again this way

you say we were bought with a price but the translation says the cost was corresponding ransom,( price)

was it the same imperfect price for imperfect people, or a greater price for imperfect people, corresponding to what.

for instance , 1 ton weight in exchange for a 1 ton weight is a corresponding exchange, if jesus was perfect how could perfection be equal exchange for imperfection .


Jonatan's comment on 2020-08-03 23:04:58:

Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. (1 Cor 7:23)

For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matt 26:28)


Patty Tozi's comment on 2020-06-04 16:12:25:

The ending of time - is the beginning of seeing God's true Love for us. The war is on for our soles. Evilness is fighting God's Angel's now. The fight is on. No straddling the fence any more. Who do you choose in these times? Make up your mind. For our Lord comes as a thief in the night. No more chances to choose once He comes. I cannot express how it will be. More poweful then ever imagined.. In a dream l saw the clouds opening with our Lord Jesus and His mighty angels coming down. So powerful the mountains moved. Can't hide. You had your chance. Meet your beginning and your ending of your life. He is here !!!


bob Hilt's comment on 2020-06-04 10:54:46:

DJ - I do not much care for Lexicons of the modern era and yes publishers are changing the meaning of words. what does being gay mean? Happy or a sodomite?

Henry Thayer has a lexicon and he was a Unitarian that did not believe in the deity of Jesus and his word definitions reflect this. I had a Strong's concordance from the 1980's and the word definitions are not the same as the modern ones.

Gerhard Kittel has a Greek Lexicon that is an absolute standard in Bible colleges and he was an early member of the Nazi party of Hitler. So should we trust a Nazi to tell us what the words in Greek really mean? This is not a conspiracy theory as it is well documented. Kittel was to face war crimes after WW 2 and he died before trial.

Zondervan is the exclusive printer of the NIV Bible.

Zondervan is the largest printer of Bibles in the English speaking world. They are owned by Harper Collins which prints gay p orn and the Satanic Bible for the church of satan. Their parent company is the News Corp we know as Fox TV.

Bad tree = bad fruit. They are changing the word definitions.


Precious Muchemwa's comment on 2020-06-04 03:16:06:

Amen. Thank you so much.


Chris's comment on 2020-06-03 01:23:31:

It would be difficult to give some spiritual meaning or significance to you from these chapters, since you will need to read them yourself, asking the Lord to speak to you through your reading of them & in light of what you may be going through in your life.

Another person can only explain the account there, but won't be able to give you the special word to you, unless the Lord directs him. Maybe, you could read those chapters & find something there that seems to warm your heart. And if you don't understand it, maybe we could give the meaning and/or application.


Precious Muchemwa's comment on 2020-06-02 08:42:04:

I dreamt someone telling me to read Isiah chapter 42 and chapter 44 so l wanted to know what these chapters might mean in the spiritual realm. Maybe there is something I should know that I am not aware of in the waking life.
