    It's simple. It's the Big Bang Theory of Human life. Outdoor Space has it's "Big Bang Theory" and so do the creatures of the earth and humanity. God spoke and it became to be.
    Two life giving organisms come together to create earthly creatures and man. Psalm 139:14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

    Greetings Mr. Myers, For those not familiar with the New Testament these are the words of our Savior Jesus Christ. Matthew 23:1-10; by the apostle John ( Jesus Christ spokesman) Revelation 2:6,15.

    Greetings Mr. Petty, For years we were told that there is a spirit in man which King Solomon of old told us in his Book of Ecclesiastes that the spirit of man goes up to heaven and the creatures of the earth spirits go down at death. I have also been told and read that the nature man comes first then the spirit after the resurrection from the dead at Jesus Christ second coming. Only the Word God (Jesus Christ our Lord) of John 1:1 made Himself lower than the angels He created under the supervision of God also mentioned in John 1:1 and in the model prayer God is mentioned in the Book of Mathew and introduced to us as Our Father, to say otherwise doesn't make sense to me. So what do we understand, that there are 2 in the Godhead, God the Father and His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. The dead in Christ shall rise first; those that have the power (holy spirit) of God our Father upon our corpses be they ashes or not. I know of some brethren that have been cremated and are awaiting the resurrection of the dead. The rest that are alive shall meet them in rhe clouds and arrive at the Mount of Olives as Jesus Christ promised. God never lies.

    Greetings Mr. McNeely, As God our Father above chose King Cyrus of old (A worldly king) to rule the children of Israel, He chose Queen Elizabeth (This worldly queen) to be a good example of manners and behavior to others. Here religious beliefs however by example are not right with God. I just happened to see the star of her religion on her priest back and the sashes they wear. Showing the practices of idolatry as so did the 10 tribes to the north of the land of Palestine so long ago. Time will tell just how many follow her good examples of behavior she has shown over the years and what kind of impact it has had.

    Oh boy, okay. Let's start with Matthew 23:1-10. Don't you think they are disobeying our Savior's own commands? Therefore there teachings do not agree with the true Gospel. Who wants to worship a dead tree top. Not me. Have a lovely day.

    Greetings everyone! Even though I counted the cost and took the Sabbath day test seriously. I still feel like a outcast among many brethren and I know Our Father's truths and follow them. Sometimes I wonder if I am following the right people. I am an attendee of the statutes of Leviticus 23 including the weekly Sabbath. Along with serving others when I can. It's sad to feel physically alone yet not spiritual alone for God is with us. God our Father is truly a friend and helper in time of need with our Savior Jesus Christ leading the way when you let Him.

    Greetings Mr. Petty! How does one account for the vast number of Sunday worship temples built around this world by Sunday preachers and Jews? We know Christianity is not Catholic, Mormon or Judaism.

    When we read fear God, it means respect for our Father above. It must be free-willed without bias.
    A total commitment to a new way of life and thinking. No more dwelling on the lusts of the flesh but building the character of our God from within; The fruit of the spirit which has no law. Gal. 5:22

    Leviticus 23: God's Law vs General Conferences Friday-Sunday.

    You are correct Mr. Petty. When Jesus Christ fulfilled the animal sacrifices of the Temple he also replaced Aaron and his sons as High Priest. Jesus rose from the died after 3 days and 3 nights. He is alive and has returned to heaven and is seated at God our Father's right hand in the Holy of Hollies interceding for us as our High Priest forever. So, when this Temple is built before Jesus Christ second coming we need not participate.

    After prayers for guidance and understanding I keep a Chapter of the Bible in context, it sheds a whole different meaning of understanding. Ezekiel had heard all the sounds before hand and did not hear God; then silence ( "a still small voice"). Ezekiel then girds himself and looks out the entrance of the cave. He then hears the Lord speak just like Samuel the boy did when he was going to be chosen as a Prophet of God. Yes, your article is about using God's character of the "fruit of the spirit" to all mankind in their need for outgoing Godly love what we call Agape. We all need compassion and sacrifice of our time to others in need. Without love we die just like a abandoned family pet. God's love brings life, peace, comfort, and happiness; knowing that someone cares. May we continue to realize we need each other no matter whom we are. Our God is Love, not hate.

    It is a disheartening situation. Having former President Obama and is administration legalizing the practices of Sodom and Gomorrah as a law for this nation as cursed this land we live in. A friend of ours said, "We got what we deserved. " God has allowed this because our nation has forsaken Him. God sped the day of His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ's return.

    Thank you. Very well put into the right prospective. We must stand as Israelites of old, like, the prophet Daniel, Shadrach, Meshac, Abednego, Jesus Christ, and his Apostles of old against the gentile gods of the nations. Always remembering what has been said in the past in the Book of Matthew 23:1¶Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples,2saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat.
    3“Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do.
    As long as the authorities keep the Commandments of our Heavenly Father we obey, but if not, then we do not.

    A common mistake: " Whatever the case, once there, the Lord ministered to Elijah in a very personal and gentle manner—with “a still small voice” (verse 12). After this encounter, Elijah emerged ready to continue in his service to God." NJKV I Kings 19:13 ... Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, "What are you doing here Elijah?". READ verses 14 - 16. As a fellow daughter in Jesus Christ please keep the scriptures in context. It is very important that we are not seen as "Wolves in Sheep's clothing". Thank you for your article.
    Have a good and Happy Sabbath.

    Thanks Janet for the reminder of God Our Father's mercy, kindness, and forgiveness.
    He truly is our helper in time of need when we continue to obey Him in all we do as we glorify Him in our thoughts, words, and deeds of righteousness. I am sure glad He gives us repentance when we falter.
