What about adding a "Broken Heart", from Psa. 34:18, to your list on Page 10?

Thanks Mark! It's added :-) Bob

Tried to print the comments on praying to God the Father, in the name of Jesus. I liked the response. It will not print for me. Yes, I saved it, maybe it will print off of that?

Mar/25/09

Sorry it didn't print for you Mary. Try it again, I made a few changes in the way the files print, and tested it with IE6,7 & 8 and Firefox. If it still won't print for you, email me at bobjones at biblefood dot com and tell me what Internet Browser you are using, and I will work with you until it prints :-) Bob

Bob - a couple more trinity thoughts:

Water molecule: (Very significant since it's vital for life and it is also the first substance made) 3 Atoms: 2 Hydros, 1 Oxygen

Within each Atom: Protons, Neutrons, Electrons (Another Trinity within a Trinity!)

I think you got these other 2: Matter: Solid, Liquid, Gas

Space: 3 Dimensions

That's all I got for now.

Hello. I have been looking at baptism lately and have come across one of the texts that you pointed out here: "Baptizo" became the common Greek word for "dipping", "submerging", and "washing" by the time of Christ and the writing of books of the New Testament. The Greek word "baptizo", is even translated "washings" in Heb 9:10, where it speaks of the ceremonial "washings" of the Old Testament temple sacrifice system." Is it significant that the ceremonial washings/cleansings that they are speaking about here were, as far as I know were often pourings or sprinklings (but not often or ever immersions)? I guess when I look at the whole picture, baptizo in Heb 9:10 (referring to many OT sprinklings and pourings)it seems we might benefit by looking to the these OT washings (chronologically before Christian baptism) to help define it in the NT.

Hi Maarten, Good question, but "Proschusis" is the Greek word for "pouring", as in Heb. 11:28, where it is translated "sprinkling" in the KJV, and "Rhantismos" is the Greek word for "sprinkling", as in Heb. 9:13, 12:24, and 1 Pet. 1:2, where it is also translated "sprinkling" in the KJV. I do not see where "baptizo" in Heb. 9:10, or anywhere else in the N.T. has any sense of "sprinkling" or "pouring", but would be correctly translated in Heb. 9:10 as "washings", or "dippings", or transliterated as "baptisms". I must believe that the author of the book of Hebrews used the word he meant to use in each instance. Blessings to you and yours, Bob

Wow, I stumbled upon your website while looking for information about what the "falling away" mentioned in 2 Thess. 2:3 means. After reading your article and comparing it to other explanations I have read, your explanations make the most sense. I look forward to exploring the rest of your website. Thank you, and blessings to you!

Hi Bob, love the site !, (praise the Lord) I have two questions,Does God love everyone, or just the "Elect"?. The next one may not be so simple to answer, In Matt 28:19,it talks about baptising, as if God is giving an instruction to baptise, and instructions when baptising, I know the Mormon church (LDS)for example use this as evidence that we need to be baptized by someone in Authority, (Priesthood),can you explain the verse for me please, because I know myself we are baptised by spirit. 1 Cor 12:13. Thank you in advance Bob.

Hi Peter, I am glad you are enjoying the Bible studies! Concerning who God "loves", the Scripture teaches in Eph 1:4, and 2 Tim 1:9 that those who will be saved were chosen "before the foundation of the world", and that there are people who will not believe, who God has "ordained to condemnation", as in Jude 4, and we see false teachers who stumble at the Word, being disobedient: "whereunto also they were appointed", in 1 Pet 2:8, and even false teachers who are described as "natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed" in 2 Pet 2:12, and, in Rev 17:8 we see wicked people whose names were NOT Written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world and never will be, (Greek "Perfect" tense verb). Psalm 11:5 states that "The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth". Jesus stated in John 3:18 "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." When I read the Scriptures about the "election" (choosing) of those who are going to be "saved" that took place "before the foundation of the earth", and the Scriptures about those who will not be saved, as those who are allowed to go their own chosen way, I see absolutely no point in time or in eternity when God "loved every human being". I believe this false idea comes from a misunderstanding of a few verses that SEEM to say that God loves every human being. What is most important is that God clearly loves all those who love Jesus and believe (trust and rely) on Him. "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved".

Hi Bob, Me again ;-), I was thinking of a trinity illustration that I have used often in the passed to describe the act of Gambling, but feel sure it can be adapted to suit the Trinity, -- Fire ! - 1. Heat = urge/desire,(Felt but not seen = Spirit)- 2. Fuel = money to burn, (visible and perishes = Christ) 3. Oxygen = free space (invisible and life controlling). I really don't mind if you think you can't use it for any reason, or even if you would like to change the wording, I tried to explain the three elements of fire, Godhead, and gambling by relating them all to each other, I think I did not too bad. ;-)

Peter

Sep/14/09

PS, I intended to add, if one element were to be removed we wouldn't have a Godhead, nor a Fire, and for the Gamblers, No betting. !

Sep/14/09

Well Peter, I think you are thoroughly demonstrating how God has stamped the creation with the number 3 :-) Romans 1:20 states that the invisible things about God can be clearly seen from observing the creation, even his eternal power and Deity; so that men are without excuse! Thanks, Bob

In my Masonic version of the KJV, Isaiah 3:1 refers to the stay and the staff. What are the meanings of this phrase?

Sep/17/09

James, I take Isaiah 3:1 to be in the midst of a Tribulational/Millennial context. Isa 2:1-4 and Isa 4:1-6 I take to be about the Nation of Israel during the Millennial Reign of Christ. The Scriptures in between, I take to concern Israel during the 7 Year Tribulation. "Stay" in Isa 3:1 speaks of "support" for the Nation of Israel, and "staff" is the same Hebrew word intensified, "support of every kind". In the last part of this verse, we see 2 types of "support" God denies to out of fellowship Israel, "food" and "water". We see Israel in this context "prideful", forgetting God, with a false humility, and in Isa 2:22, not worthy to breathe God's air. I take this as literal Israel under Antichrist during the future Tribulation, and let it also be a warning to us personally and to America as a Nation. Thanks for the question, Bob

WOW! I just read "1. Who is Jesus Christ, according to the Bible?" and you hit the nail on the head that was beautiful. THANK YOU!

Thanks Joshua, I get excited re-reading the Page about Jesus too! I believe that is the most important subject in the world, who Jesus is! Thanks again for the encouragement, Bob

What is the doctrine of once saved always saved? My understanding is that if you are truly saved then you are always saved, but what I am finding is that there are some that believe they are saved and are not truly saved.They have not received the holy spirit nor have they been born again thay simply were told to say a prayer. Your thoughts please?

Sep/21/09

Hi Joshua, I believe the phrase "once saved always saved" is a "misnomer". The New Testament does not use the word "saved" in that manner. The statement would more properly be "Once born again, always born again". A child of God cannot be "unborn" again. "Salvation" speaks of the "benefits" we receive from God as we walk with Him. See "Is the Child of God Eternally Secure?" posted at the top of the Home Page under "What's New". Look it over and e-mail me if you still have questions :-), Bob

Naturally, the current events in Israel have brought the public to a new level of awareness and involvement over who will lead the country during this difficult time.

Yes Barbara, things are getting intense. Maybe time for a "7 year peace plan" for the Middle East? Blessings, Bob

Q) Is Jesus God or son of God or Both?

Dec/15/09

Hi Amu, See Page 1, "Who is Jesus Christ, according to the Bible?" for the long answer, but the short answer is that He is both. He is now Eternal God Himself, who has forever taken on a human body - that of Jesus of Nazareth. He is undiminished Deity and true humanity in one unique person - our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I pray that "the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what is the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints".
