    Southern Lady,
    May I suggest a a scripture, for your consideration; this is direction given to the Israelite nation that was soon to walk into their promised land. It is a warning, that if they were to leave their God Jehovah (YHWH) by breaking their agreement (contract) with him, they could not take comfort in their being “God’s people”. God did not break his promise to Israel,

    Israel broke their promise to Jehovah. Deuteronomy 28:58-66

    This is the the reason for Jesus’ words in Matthew chapter 23.

    What do we think; was the human body designed or did it come about by chance?

    The voice was that of Satan, who used the serpent to speak his lies.

    If a person wants to live a life of sin, he or she will live it. That is born out by 6,000 years of history.
    To accomplish their choice, they need to salve or deaden their conscious, to ease their mind and heart of the obvious failure to live with dignity. It is obligatory for them to ridicule and alter what they know is right so they can get a measure of peace with their choice.

    It is ‘Phenomenal’ that God’s Word has been preserved for mankind throughout time. God is not without witness of himself and his Son, and only by God’s Holy Spirit is it made available to all who seek God and the knowledge of his purposes.

    A man or woman who trusts in the almighty God does not need to yield to fear of man.
    Is a government of political intrigue superior to God and his purposes? We should obey God as ruler, not man.
    Personally, in principle, I would refuse to pay the fine and would accept the consequences (and the blessings)..

    We may know what time it is for the earth, but what time is it for God’s purpose for the earth and we who live on it?

    Could that scripture simply mean what it says? It actually does not need to be interpreted as if it is in code language. There is no mystery to it – just read it as written.

    Is it hard to understand what the scripture at John 17:1-3 says?

  • June 23, 2015 at 11:11am

    People can have certain “beliefs” about God and they live by those beliefs.

    But are those beliefs accurate? Are they scriptural? If they are false beliefs, based on inaccuracies, then they are of no real value and a waste of time.

    Isaiah 14:12 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

    12 Shining morning star,
    how you have fallen from the heavens!
    You destroyer of nations,
    you have been cut down to the ground.

    The English Standard Version is translated this way:

    “How you are fallen from heaven,
    O Day Star, son of Dawn!
    How you are cut down to the ground,
    you who laid the nations low !”

    Donna Carol Voss, Good morning!

    Isaiah 14:12 reads;
    “How you have fallen from heaven,
    O shining one, son of the dawn!
    How you have been cut down to the earth,
    You who vanquished nations!”

    This description of the devil is included in the context of the entire chapter 14. It is addressed to the king of Babylon but by extension is applicable to the devil and satan.

    The name “Lucifer” is not in the original Hebrew text of Isaiah.

    And yes, we hold dear the Hebrew Scriptures (old testament), and without them, the Greek text (new testament) is incomplete.

    Donna Carol Voss,

    Good morning. You may research this subject yourself at:

    Scroll down to the subject of “Devil and Demons” and you will get scriptural answers to your inquires.

    Donna Carol Voss,

    As far as I can recall, the Holy Scriptures do not refer to satan as a “brother” of our Lord. However, he is referred to as a “son of God” as are all the rest of the angels.

    I never refer to satan the devil as our Lord’s brother. He does not deserve that honor.

  • [2] June 11, 2015 at 2:45pm

    Scripturally, Jesus is the “first’born of all creation”. This means he was created first, before all other beings and things. He is God’s only-begotten son (John 3:16, Col. 1:15). At that time he was known as “The Word” .
    Now after that God also created angels, millions of them, and among those angels, one defected from loyalty to God’s sovereignty and made himself a satan. All things and entities were created by Jehovah God and his only-begotten Son was with him in the creative process. (Genesis 1:26)

    My grandfather spanked me when I deserved it. I am who I am today because of his fine discipline.

    I loved him – still do.

    I have found that most people do not want to be trained or taught civil behaviour. They prefer to stick to what they want, not what they need. If someone comes along with beneficial counsel, they are considered enemies and rejected, or ridiculed.

    So, some of us refrain from even trying to help, and unable to contribute a solution through civil conversation, we recede from the mayhem altogether.

    HigherRoad, yes you are correct!
    Although Saul was seeking to murder David, David would not reciprocate when given the opportunity to kill Saul even though it could be viewed by others as self defense.
    Now, why was David not guilty of “murder” of thousands of Philistines?
