The Godhead Scriptures's comment on 2020-09-28 12:55:12:

Acts 17

29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the GODHEAD is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:


Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7

1 John 5:7.

John 10:30, I and My Father are one.

Also, in these following scriptures , we clearly see the Godhead (Acts 17:27-30) speaking to each other.

NOTE: In the King James Bible, the words , TRINITY and TRIUNE,

ARE NOT used. Someone who was unable to teach LET US as a lesson, used these other words to describe, 'Three.'

If we used the Search Box provided on this website you would have seen it came up with NOTHING for triune and Trinity.

Father God is spirit

The Holy Spirit is spirit

Jesus is called, Son of Man. He is all God and all man. God in the flesh: so He could be the Lamb of God and save us from our sins.

Note these in your Bible. It comes up quite a lot.

Someone asked is God a physical being, or a state of consciousness


sarah's comment on 2020-09-27 03:25:04:

..let me add to your comment sananka, that since those being led by those blind leaders are also blind ..they are women wearing men's clothes and are blind to how they look..they actually think its ok...yep it's ok ladies to wear men's garments....because nobody sees them as men's pants..they're women's pants..ok? naked..and don't even know it.

well according to revelation 3..the church is full of undressed members that don't see their nakedness..consider this...women are wearing pants and donte even see that they're dressing like a abominatiin and dont even know it.. not a deliberate act..they are blind. but have you tried telling those ladies they're an abomination to god for wearing men's clothes..i.e pants..????

the devil has the women of this age in his cunning deception...look..the men are not blind..they will wear a skirt as a deliberate act of defiance..but the women wear pants and are none the wiser..see where the devil has worked on eve?? because she was designed to be that way..totally deluded..blind to her. nakedness and blind to abominable clotbes.. by nature that woman is deceivable ..get back to your husband the word eve..

now read deuteronomy 22:5 again with your eyes open...


Sananka's comment on 2020-08-07 17:32:41:

While people are still trying to 'Justify' the Scriptures to make them 'fit' their lifestyles, this Scripture is as plain as the nose on their faces. It said, men shall NOT wear womens' garments and women shall not wear that which pertaineth to a man (shall NOT wear mens' clothing). Whosoever does this, is an Abomination to the Lord thy God.

If you are 'straight' and are doing this, it is 'wrong', an Abomination. If you are 'gay' in any way, that is 'doublely wrong' on you, mainly because 1- You being a homosexual, committing the act of homosexuality, is an Abomination to the Lord thy God- Lev. 18:22 & Rom. 1:27, and 2- you are wearing the opposite gender's clothing, and some of you have actually changed your genders, just to be able to wear them, is an Abomination. Men shouldn't wear long hair nor women to have bald heads as fashion statements either. We all know that we were and still are being taught by pastors who 'skirt' around the Truth. If they tell you they have read the 'whole' Bible, then they have all read this Scripture, and still, they don't address neither one of these Scriptures to anyone, inside or outside the Church. The preachers should never be ashamed or scared to preach the Word of Truth. Yes, the Word is to help those who need it. Everyone needs Spiritual help and guidance, through the Word and with prayer. The Word is also Truth, so it will step on some peoples' toes, and the Truth hurts, but still, preach the Truth. This is not something that preachers should be 'beating -around-the-bush' about with anyone. If preachers aren't preaching the Truth, then the are preaching Lies. If people can't get the truth from preachers, in order for their lives to be saved, delivered, changed and accepted by the Heavenly Father, and no longer be called an Abomination by Him, they will be lost. It's already like that now-people are lost, but I'm going to, "Let them alone...the blind leading the blind, and they all fall into the ditch." Matthew 15:14 KJV.


Robin Stewart's comment on 2020-05-09 11:11:07:

You are right. God gives us the Word to make our lives better not worse. By making our own rules and deciding we know best......well the results are not pretty. It is all about trust and obedience. You can trust Him to know what is best for you, because HE designed you OR you can trust in what you think is right. What does scripture say. Proverbs 16:25. For those of you who are reading this thread, look this scripture up.


Robin Stewart's comment on 2020-05-09 11:01:34:

Amen! What you said is truth!

sharifah's comment on 2015-09-18 02:23:41:

i think i was about those people trying to be women and change their true nature of creation and about the homosexuality they are like not appreciative about God's plan for them.


celuska's comment on 2015-08-09 21:11:39:

I think that God Is wise and he knows all those complications in this modern world.


Ubong N. Adiauko's comment on 2015-07-29 06:45:22:

Adam answered and replied to God saying 'the wife you gave me, when God asked him hast thou eaten of the tree I instructed you not to? In the case of Due. 22:5, there was and there's still a clear specifications in the issues of man not adoring himself with women apparel and vice versa. God knew human mentality that His word can be questioned and He spelled this law out through moses. It was to be observed physically, mentally, emotionally and otherwise, unlike Adam telling God ' this wife you gave me,' meaning that God should have instructed Eve also. God is Truth.


Sabbatismos A.'s comment on 2015-07-27 01:23:45:

Everyone seems to pretend not to understand the post by Abbas James, where he said God speaks before things happen. None is seeing that someone here is implying that God gave the command to Israel because of the heathen nations around. Even the person didn't bother telling us what was meant by the "pertaineth", he just finagled away from it. Another appealed to "Women of God" who wear what they like and do great things... someone even said it wasn't addressed in the NT. Was the Bible supposed to be "NT re-addressing what is addressed in the OT"? Is the NT the "two edged sword" of God Almighty? Why is none defining the "pertaineth" and the "abomination"? And, why do we disagree that unisex clothing was never started by Christians-strictly defined? Where is a woman seen listed among those who go to war in Scriptures, and what weapons were they to use that might have differed from that of men? Which weapons do American women armies use? When did women start going to war?... Why are we deceiving ourselves, modifying the innerrant and unmistakable Word? Let me ask this, pls: now that a woman can be modestly adorned in women trousers, pls, how can a man be modestly adorned in male skirts? Thanks for your answer. Greetings from Nigeria.


kevin's comment on 2015-07-18 23:55:44:

we need to study words in the Word. and know the history of the time. First if you study the words, it is referring to war garments, something prepared, i.e. any apparatus as an implement, utensil, dress, vessel or weapon :--armour -bearer , artillery, bag, carriage, furnish, and males in armies of the heathen around them, would put a dress womans robe, over their armor to sneak attack enemy, it was a disguise to get in close to attack. And this is part of the law of moses which was nailed to the cross according to Colossians 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross there are various 'laws ' in the bible, the law of moses is gone, it was a civil code for that nation alone, and ceremonial laws which were done away with at the cross, their are health laws that we are not 'under the law ' but we should follow for our own health sake, and the moral law, the 10 commandments which are eternal. SO where in the NT is this issue addressed ? and even in this Deut 22 it is not what everyone thinks.


Pastor Caleb's comment on 2015-07-13 02:13:09:

don 't be lead by what people say,due22:5 not trousers nor skirt it 's about homosexualism and modesty in dressing


Josie's comment on 2015-06-15 11:14:43:

Well I love jeans but while me wearing them is like me dis obeying God 's word in: be bible


Nessa's comment on 2015-06-13 12:44:40:

I am not convicted for wearing pants made for women. I am confused by what people say concerning, Deuteronomy 22:5. The Text is speaking about cross-dressing and homosexuality, there were no trousers at that , the difference in the clothing, was the fabric and sewing style one for male and one for female cloaks, robes, and tunics, just as it is today, with the styling of the clothes that we wear. The trousers for men are made in a different style as those of women. I think some people use this and other scriptures to lord over or control others. Dressing modestly is what matters, therefore a woman can dress modestly in women 's trousers just as she can in a dress, on the other hand women can dress in women 's clothing and it not look modest. Men can dress in men clothing and it look modest, on the other hand it could not look modest. Again Deuteronomy 22:5 is speaking about cross-dressing and homosexuality which is an abomination to God. Traditional and religious, I am neither, but I am spiritual and growing in the Lord, please let the Spirit of God guide me and others who truly want to please Him with our lives. If you can 't help please don 't hinder with your opinions, God is not the author of confusion, so study and explain, don 't just read and give an opinion. Be blessed.


therese engbrock's comment on 2015-06-05 18:06:13:

Do you suppose that back in the 1960,s when women and feminism took hold that GOd knew that society would become so acceptting of gays,transgender people.and this is why He wanted people to be what He made them to be.Holy and separate for Him?


durojaye mike's comment on 2015-05-26 03:24:28:

The word partaineth means,belongs,owns etc.Therefore,no dress should exchange between opposite sexes,except they are couples-husband and wife are one.


solomon's comment on 2015-05-20 11:56:06:

pls let us be realistic, which one is the men 's clothing, is it only the trousers? bcos as we have the men 's shirts, suits, trousers, shoes etc. so likewise the women also have their own trousers, shirts, suit,shoe, etc so which one is really the problem bcos any time they talk about men 's cloth its always refered to only trousers. pls deut. 22:5a is talking about modesty in dressing .Thanks and God Bless you.
