Ellen G. White, who many in the Seventh-Day Adventist church consider a modern day prophet (according to Rev. 12:19, and 19:10) had this to say about this event. I believe she wrote this by inspiration of Jehovah our God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in her wonderful book on the Life of Christ called, "The Desire of Ages": Christ arose from the ...

In the scriptures, the word “heaven” is used in two basic ways. First, it refers to the place where God lives, which is the ultimate home of the faithful. Second, it refers to the expanse around the earth–the universe (see Genesis 1:1). The verse you quote is meant to communicate that God's word will last longer than the universe. There are many verses in ...

To give you the short answer yes. Now to explain that, and give you some references in the Bible which show that to be true, and to show that it will be replaced with another Heaven.

According to Isaiah chapter one God never instituted animal sacrifices, incense or ceremonial observances. He doesn't want them nor should we/they have done those things as it put blood on their hands. He is very clear in that all He said was "do justice and show mercy etc". Jeremiah echoes this fact and the other prophets, amos, micah, hosea, samuel and in ...

When John was arrested suddenly he doubts Jesus as Messiah. In Matthew 11:2-11 "Are you really the Messiah we've been waiting for, or should we keep looking for someone else?" This doesn't make sense. How should I understand it? John was the last of the line of Old Testament prophets. Mat 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are ...

My question here is how did they not believe him? What exactly did they do that showed that they did not believe him? Mat 3:7-9 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: ...

In the beginning of John's mission, he seemed to think that God was coming in wrath to judge the wicked: When he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? ... Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. Therefore every tree that does not bear good ...

The purpose of Jesus asking the question was not to ask what they did or did not believe about John's preaching, or even his affirmation of Jesus as the messiah. What Jesus was doing was; knowing that they were trying to hold on to their positions as determining what was or was not of God, he was publicly humbling them. In asking them if the Baptism of John ...

The short answer: to our fellow Christians, our brothers and sisters in Christ. Allow me to develop my answer by first contextualizing the verse. Notice in each of the preceding parables in Matthew 24 and 25, there is a pronouncement and/or an act by someone in authority: a master (24:45-51) who in light of his slave's faithfulness while his master ...

Taken in context, those declared to be sheep (that is, those described prior to 25:40) fed people who were hungry, gave drink to people who were thirsty, clothed people who were naked, visited people who were sick, and people who were imprisoned. But obviously, from their answers, the did not recognize Jesus as any of the ones they had served. To paraphrase ...

Was just reading the similar verse in Luke and was drawn into it too... For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him. (Luke 19:26, KJV) The Luke version appears to add some helpful context, so I suggest reading that chapter. A few directions that seemed to ...
