“And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.”
King James Version (KJV)
Rev J Rodney Quesenberry's comment on 2020-09-12 03:48:59:
Great understanding of the term willful sin. John Wesley use to use those terms in the 1700's. The understanding of sin, that was not of the heart, not willful, no intent and no motive of premeditated thought. Yes a involuntary sin but not from a heart that's been purified by the Holy Ghost. But it still has to be recognized, asked forgiveness for and stay clean and holy.
Carleton's comment on 2020-08-27 15:21:33:
A repentant experience by a born again believer requires faith not only in Jesus Christ and his blood bought sacrifice for the remission of one's sins but also faith that he will forgive our sins and that he will send the Holy Spirit as proof of his forgiveness and this Holy Spirit is peace and love dwelling in one's heart.
For some reason this conversion to a new life with power over willful sin can be offensive to some that call themselves Christian.

From my reading of the word, with the Holy Spirit's help, there seems to me to be nothing that says we will be taken out of here before Christ's return. The question of two being together and one taken away is answered by Christ with his saying that the one taken is taken to where the eagles gather and where the eagles are, there the slain are. Also Job 39:40 talks about that place of the eagles being where the slain are. Ephesians 1:20 says when we are saved, immediately we are seated in
Christ in the Heavens (the New Heavens ) where we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in high places. Although we don't feel it right now, we're already there. We are Christ's bride. Rev 21:2. We ARE the New Jerusalem so when Christ returns, there we are with him. Rev 21:10. He comes here to earth WITH the New Jerusalem, gathers up to us those who are remaining here on the earth and CONTINUES to come down to the earth where we will rule with him here on the earth and kings and judges for 1000 years. Nowhere does it say he comes down and then returns back up, but rather proceeds to come down here TO RULE for 1000 years. This is the truth as I have read it from the Word of God, Jesus Christ. He IS the Word of God, the Holy Scriptures, and he is alive, the living Word.

Jesus tells us plainly in Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed (weeds) tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST first the TARES (WEEDS) tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST first the TARES (WEEDS) tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
(first the tares WEEDS get gathered, then the wheat last) could it be any more plain than this?) Did Jesus mess up the timing of end time events? (first the tares WEEDS get gathered, wheat last)
Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

I'm sorry I didn't answer that question. Jesus' mission at that point was to preach the gospel to Israel, demonstrating his power through mighty works. The word "meet" is Old English meaning appropriate or suitable. So he is saying that granting her request would be taking his blessing, reserved at that time for the Jews (the children), his current mission field, and giving it away to outsiders (the dogs).
Greg's comment on 2020-07-19 05:00:00:
If the feet of the Messiah do not touch the earth at His return, how do you explain Zechariah 14:4?
"And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south."
Also, if the body of Christ is taken out before the Tribulation, then who are those that endure until the end? (Mark 13:27, 1 Corinthians 15:52)
He that endureth to the END shall be saved (Matthew 10:22)
So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, (Mark 13:49)
Are we not told that it "is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully" (1 Peter 2:19).
Jesse's comment on 2020-07-18 21:11:58:
Jesus said it is not meet, that is, it is not right to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. Now what if your pastor called you a dog? You know, "Get out of my way you dog!"
But here is what Jesus was referring to:
You see, the Jews considered Gentiles to be dogs. To the Jews, Gentiles were considered "religious dogs." So Jesus is saying it is not right to take the children's food and give it to the dogs.
But look at the piety of this woman in Verse 27: Remember that this Gentile woman was coming to Jesus to help her daughter.
And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
This is the piety of this woman, her humbleness, her submission. It is not the fact that she wouldn't take no for an answer. She needed help!
But the Lord was putting her in a situation so that it would show her motives. You know, how much do you want help for your daughter?

Can anyone explain what this phrase means: "It is not meet to take the children's bread, and cast it to the dogs"
Bendito Palavra's comment on 2020-07-18 13:58:44:
Actually Jesus was calling her a puppy (kynarion) under the table, not so much to demean her, but to develop an object lesson. The Jews, by reason of the covenant and their works of the law, considered themselves to be "in" with God and all others to be outsiders. Jesus upended this construct by demonstrating that the exercise of genuine faith in Jesus Christ is what actually pleases God.
SUBMISSION IN MARRIAGE's comment on 2020-07-18 12:52:48:
There is more peace in the home if the husband follows Christ; the wife should be able follow her husband's leadership if he does.
1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
1 Timothy 3:11
Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it
Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away:
Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Colossians Chapter 3
18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Peter 3:1
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be WON by the conversation of the wives;
1 Corinthians chapter 7 deals with Marriage.
Submission works both ways.
Shared household duties makes for more Romance.
Shared accounting duties enlightens partnership and goals. Read Proverbs for money advise.
Shared Parenting produces happier, balanced kids. Media is a privilege: not a 1st Amendment right.

What is the difference between the King James Bible (1611) and the Geneva Bible (1560) in terms of the first chapter:Genesis? And why the difference can be important?
Chris's comment on 2020-07-18 04:34:17:
Jason, this chapter in Ecclesiastes shows us that those in power & authority over us, are not always honourable & worthy to be in that position. They may have got there through various means, whether by blood-line, wealth, deception, creating fear, etc. However they are placed there, that position doesn't necessarily make them suitable or give them the needed wisdom to govern. We can sometimes see this in the workplace: how often we notice that a person is really not suitable for the job given him, or the manager of a team, shows no ability towards that position but was elevated to it because of some great need or even because of favouritism.
So here in Eccl 10, we see the writer (likely, Solomon) giving his observations, as a wise man. In verse 7, he is saying that some leaders should not be so because of incompetence. That is why there are some lowly folk who show more wisdom than the leaders whom they serve (servants now ride the horses which the famous 'wise' leaders should have been seen on), and the leaders are now humbled & "walk as the lowly servants walk". Wisdom in life, i.e. not just knowing about the world but to know live carefully & honourably before God & king, is the key in this chapter. And this thought fills much of the book of Proverbs also.
Carolyn's comment on 2020-07-18 03:40:52:
In Matthew 15 verse 26, I don't know the right words to explain what "It is not meet to take the children's bread, and cast it to the dogs
A muslim was arguing with me at first that Jesus had called the woman a dog and I proved he didn't then he wanted me to explain what the above passage means, I am new in Christ so would like to ask someone with a little more knowledge to explain it to me so I can do Jesus justice.

Mexxy, the "trump" that you're speaking of is not a trumpet, it's a warning of some kind and whether we hear or not, everyone that believes in Jesus Christ and repents for their sins won't be left of the earth during the tribulation. Also, in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. - That is in reference to when the Holy Spirit is no longer on the earth and after that happens the anti-Christ will be revealed which is stated in 2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
