Hebrews 1 Study Sheet – Basic Bible Studies
Because Jesus: (1) is the one through whom God has spoken in these last days, (2) is the heir of God, (3) is the creator of the world, (4) is the radiance of God’s glory, (5) is the exact representation of God’s nature, (6) is the one who cleansed our sins, (7) is seated at God’s right hand, (8) is superior to angels, (9) is God’s Son, (10) is worshiped even by angels, (11) righteously rules an eternal kingdom, (12) will outlast the universe, (13) and sends out angels to do his bidding as they serve on behalf of Christians, then there is NO ONE who deserves our allegiance more than He.

I’ve been reading the same KJV bible that was given to me when I was 8 for 57 years. Then a couple years ago I started noticing scriptures that I had memorized and said thousands of times were different. I started to find out why and it is the most important thing that’s happened in my lifetime! Watch this hour and 15 minute video and learn what’s going on. Here’s the link–https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiK3CZBxh5o and God bless.

From Beth J. in India:

Jesus has been exalted with authority above every authority not only on this earth but also in heaven (Matt. 28:18). He is approved as Lord not only in this life but also in that which to come (Eph. 4:21). Jesus is not seated as king of a physical nation (John 8:23). He is king of the Jews but only in a spiritual sense (Rom. 9:6-7). His kingdom is not of this world; it is not a physical kingdom (John 18:36). He is king of all people who are spiritual Jews (Rom. 2:28-29). He is king only of those who are translated into His marvelous kingdom (Col. 1:13).

Verse of the Day on the Fellowship Room: "The edge",


#Jesus #Bible #faith #VOTD


A atual manifestação do reino de Cristo, portanto, é espiritual. Seu reinado não ameaça, diretamente, nenhum governo humano. Jesus não é político, nem promove a prosperidade material. Ele veio salvar pecadores.

"The First and Last"

These were some of the first words of the Lord Jesus to the apostle John when, on the Lord’s day, he found himself in the Spirit. John had already registered a word from God the Father, that he was the Alpha and the Omega, in verse 8. Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet; omega, the last.

About himself Jesus affirmed the same thing that the Father said about himself. And the Lord Jesus is he who puts his right hand upon the fainting John. The One who Lives is the same as he who touches and revives his people.

Translated into English from my Portuguese devotional.

And anyone who believes in God's Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn't obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God's angry judgment.

OK, I confess to nitpicking on a point in an otherwise excellent article, over on HTH, on why there are four gospel accounts or histories about Jesus:

Why have four accounts of the same life? These books are portraits that present four different poses as one unique personality.

"Pose" strikes me as inappropriate here, even given some poetic license. Maybe Wes (my RSS feed said he was the poster, though on the site no author is given) is a photographer. That would explain it. (I'm sure I've left him groaning at my nitpicking today.)

I often use the words "angle" or "perspective" for the different approaches of the four gospel authors. Would be poetic justice for someone to find fault with my usage, I suppose.

Wes's point is valid here, of course, and I appreciate him calling attention to the four gospels. We need more thinking on the complementary perspectives of the gospels, rather than clumsy attempts at harmonization.

Let's read each gospel for its unique approach and for its distinctive message, in order to enrich our overall understanding of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1. Productive days make a fellow feel good. Does God love me more because of it? Nah, but he plans and performs his will. So we can consider the good feeling as God-given.

2. Doing the poem a day in April again. This time, for the children. Ought to be fun.

3. Thought I'd try a different blogware other than WP. Was a case of doing better by sticking with what you know. Deleted it, installed WP.

4. Some see in every problem an opportunity. Others see in every opportunity a problem.

5. Being a great writer doesn't mean he'll get noticed. Some mediocre or bad writers are best sellers. Way of the world.

6. In the movie "The Martian," one of the astronaut's greatest challenges to staying alive was food. So when Jesus says, "Don't worry about what you're going to eat" (see Matthew 6), he takes on real issues.

7. God's wisdom, personified, says, "His whole world filled me with joy. I took delight in all human beings" Proverbs 8.31 NIrV.

Most of us are more comfortable celebrating what Jesus has done than accepting who He desires to be to us. We sing of His victories and teach of His mercies, yet rarely do we quiet our hearts and surrender to His Presence. We want Him near enough to protect us, but not so close that we are conscious of His Presence.

Two Types of People | The Fellowship Room
Steve Preston wrote:
Did you know that there are three types of people in this world: those that are good at math and those that are not? Clearly this is intended to be humorous yet often times we can group people in two groups. Usually it will depend on the subject being talked about. For instance, in religion there are two types of people; those that are for Jesus and those that are against Him.

Absolutely, it's a human-centered view of "our belief," and you're right that there's altogether too much of that.

When, however, we center on what the divine revelation says about entry into heaven, it's a whole different ballpark. Scripture shows that God loves unconditionally, since he gives everyone the opportunity to be saved. It does not say that he extends his grace unconditionally. "Many are called, few are chosen."
@JRandal According to G-D the chosen one are The Israeli and more of the Christians faith agree to that the only not agree is the Catholic Church.
Hi, guys, I'm rolling out late this morning, after a very late night, for this old guy, at least. :)

I'm going to be out of pocket today, so y'all have fun here, but first just a quick one:

As Creator, God knows us better than we know ourselves. Conversion in the biblical sense does take place, but not to another person's faith. Apostle Paul wrote that faith was (and had to be) in God. Faith is also defined and described, as far as how it is created and sustained: "So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ" Romans 10.17 NRSV. So, again, everything is pointed toward God and through Christ.

Sean, what do you understand a follower of Christ to be? For me, your description that follows is a great way to describe a follower, to "understand Christ's acts and intentions and apply them in everyday life."

With that, Christ does direct us and he does restrict our lifestyle in order to make possible our imitation of his life. So he restricts anger and hate, in order that love may be dilated, to include the righteous and unrighteous (see Matthew 5). He restricts acts of selfishness, so that we may be servants. He restricts running after wealth and accumulating riches in this life, in order that we may share with others and deposit our wealth in heaven (Matthew 5 again). He restricts the sexual life, so that we may enjoy it with our mates, as it was intended to be (Matthew 5 again). These restrictions (I'm borrowing the term here) are the means by which we focus on God's holiness and goodness.

Now I have no right to restrict or impose anything on anybody, that has not been dealt with or mentioned in Scripture. And if it's in Scripture, I don't have the right to change that. As Paul mentioned and applied in one instance what was a saying among Christians: "Don’t go beyond what is written" 1 Corinthians 4.6 NIV.

Y'all have a great day!
