Mustard Seed

Bible Questions Answered:
“What does the story of the mustard seed say to us?”
Laurence/ Cardiff, England (United Kingdom)

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:
Luke 13:18,19 NLT (Parable of the Mustard Seed. See also Matthew 13:31,32/ Mark 4:30-32.)
18 Then Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? How can I illustrate it?
19 It is like a tiny mustard seed that a man planted in a garden; it grows and becomes a tree, and the birds make nests in its branches.”

The Kingdom of God:
The Word of God in the heart of the believer.
Evangelism with the life saving Word of God.
Believers added to the church.

Jesus was using an example to illustrate the growth of the kingdom of God.
The black mustard tree (most believe this is the plant The Lord was referring to), can grow to 9 feet or more. It's seed is very small, yet the tree can be tall and full, so much so that the birds of the air, come and nest in its branches.

Zechariah 4:10 KJV
For who hath despised the day of small things?..."

Small seeds, have a way of growing.

Jesus began with a small group of 12 men.

At the upper room some 120 followers of Jesus met.
Acts 1:15 KJV
During this time, when about 120 believers were together in one place..."

120 disciples grew to over 3,000 believers in one day.
Acts 2:41 NLT
Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day—about 3,000 in all.

This number grew to 5,000.
Acts 4:4 NLT
But many of the people who heard their message believed it, so the number of believers now totaled about 5,000 men, not counting women and children.

Jerusalem's believers multiplied.
Acts 6:7 NLT
So God’s message continued to spread. The number of believers greatly increased in Jerusalem, and many of the Jewish priests were converted, too.

Gatherings of believers in Judea, Galilee, and Samaria grew.
Acts 9:31 NLT
The church then had peace throughout Judea, Galilee, and Samaria, and it became stronger as the believers lived in the fear of the Lord. And with the encouragement of the Holy Spirit, it also grew in numbers.

Jerusalem, believers grew to thousands.
Acts 21:20 NLT
After hearing this, they praised God. And then they said, “You know, dear brother, how many thousands of Jews have also believed, and they all follow the law of Moses very seriously.

Today there are estimates of between 2-3 billion Christians in the world.
In the parable, Jesus is the sower, and His seed of believers, are growing into a great harvest.

Our Lord has told us that our success will be measured by our faith. Nothing may stand in the way of the growth of the kingdom of God, if we have faith!

Matthew 17:20 KJV
And Jesus said unto them...verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Luke 17:6 KJV
And The Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

Matthew 28:18-20 NLT (Believers Great Commission.)
18 Jesus came and told His disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of
The Father and The Son and The Holy Spirit.
20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Revelation 5:11-14 NLT
11 Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands and millions of angels around the throne and of the living beings and the elders.
12 And they sang in a mighty chorus: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered— to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.”
13 And then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea. They sang: “Blessing and honor and glory and power belong to the one sitting on the throne
and to The Lamb forever and ever.”
14 And the four living beings said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped The Lamb.

Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail

Bible Questions Answered:
“...we were discussing the verse in Matthew “I will build My church, and the forces of Hades will not overpower it.” What is the point being made here?”
Roderick/ Bonn, Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia)

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:
Matthew 16:18 KJV
“... I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

The walk of a Christian is not just walk of defense, but also of offense!
What does your faith, do in offense?

Defense: The resisting (Defending an) attack, from an enemy.
Offense: The action, or actions of attacking an enemy, or enemies.

What did Jesus do? 
His faith was not only in word, but also in deeds. 
He not only defended the faith, by He also attacked the works of the enemy! 
He cast out demons, threw money changers out of the temple, told Sadducee's, and Pharisees they were hypocrites, etc. etc.

Much of what Jesus did, was in the offense, driving out evil, and setting captives free!
And we are to follow His example!

I John 3:8 KJV (Offense)
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose The Son Of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

John 13:15 KJV
For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done..."

I Peter 2:21 KJV
"... Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps:

The Word:

Psalm 44:5 KJV (Offense)
Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

Luke 10:19 KJV (Offense)
Behold, I give unto you power...over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Romans 8:35,37-39 KJV (Offense)
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

II Corinthians 10:4 KJV
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Jude 1:22,23 NLT (Offense)
22 And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering.
23 Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.

I John 4:4 KJV (Offense)
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1 John 5:4,5 KJV (Offense)
4 For whatsoever is born of God over cometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that over cometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son Of God?

Revelation 15:2 KJV (Offense)
And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

The Apostle Paul gave the church a 7 point victory plan for success.

Ephesians 6:10-18 NLT (I Thessalonians 5:8 KJV)
10 A final word: Be strong in The Lord and in His mighty power.
11 Put on all of God’s armor (Defense) so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.

12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against
evil rulers and
authorities of the unseen world, against
mighty powers in this dark world, and against
evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.
14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt (Defense) of truth and the body armor (Defense) of God’s righteousness.
15 For shoes (Defense), put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.
16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield (Defense) of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.
17 Put on salvation as your helmet (Defense), and take the sword of the Spirit(Offense), which is
the word of God.
18 Pray (Offense) in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

The Apostle Paul mentions 7 items need by the Christian, 5 are for defense, and 2 are for offense!

Using The Word Of God, and Prayer, we may go against the works of the enemy!

II Corinthians 6:4,7 KJV
4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God,in distresses..."
7 By The Word Of Truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

II Timothy 2:3,4 KJV
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

Hebrews 4:12 KJV
For The Word Of God (Sword Of The Spirit) is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Revelation 12:11 KJV
And they overcame him by The Blood Of The Lamb, and by the word of their testimony..."

Luke 10:17-20 KJV
17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
18 And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven

The gates (Powers) of hell shall not prevail against the church, because true Christian people defend the faith, and offensively, attack the enemy with the power of God!

Isaiah 58:6-9 KJV
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of The Lord shall be thy reward.
9 Then shalt thou call, and The Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and He shall say, Here I am..."

Romans 13:12 KJV
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

I Timothy 6:12 KJV
Fight the good fight of faith..."

Laurel wreaths, in ancient times, (from the Laurel, a Mediterranean tree, its leaves.), were given as a crown of honor to heroes, poets, and winners in athletic contests. It was the trophy of its day.

And now the idiom "Don't rest upon your laurels."
Meaning, do not stop and simply rest upon yesterdays on!

And the Church of Jesus Christ, is "not," to be resting upon its laurels!
Now is our finest hour, defend the faith, yes, but not to over look attacking as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, the enemy, loosing the captives, driving out the enemy in Jesus name.

Our Savior promised His church ….

Hebrews 13:5 KJV
"...for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

John 14:12-14 KJV
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in The Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.

31 When The Son Of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory:
32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a Shepherd divideth His sheep from the goats:
33 And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took Me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed Me: I was sick, and ye visited Me: I was in prison, and ye came unto Me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.
41 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took Me not in: naked, and ye clothed Me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited Me not.
44 Then shall they also answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall He answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Third Heaven

Bible Questions Answered:
“What is pauls third heaven?...”
Paisley/ Surrey, Canada (British Columbia)

Bible Text:

II Corinthians 11:16-33 KJV (Paul, defends his faithfulness to the people of God. Be sure to read the whole 11th & 12 chapters.)
16 I say again, let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little.
17 That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.
18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.
19 For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
20 For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.
21 I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit where in so ever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also.
22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.
23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.
24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?
30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.
31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.
32 In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me:
33 And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.

It was against the nature of the Apostle to brag about himself, so in II Corinthians 12:1-4, he speaks of himself in the third person. If anyone had been a true teacher, it was the beloved Apostle Paul, who had suffered and bled, in his great love for the Corinthian believers.

It was at Lystra, that the Apostle was stoned. Many believe, as did the Jews, that Paul was dead.
It was more than likely that, it was here, that the Apostle had his heavenly visitation, described in the next verses. Yet God in His mercy and love, sent Paul back to finish the work he was called to do.

II Corinthians 12:1-4 KJV
1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of
The Lord.
2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

The Third Heaven:

I Kings 8:27 KJV (Solomon)
But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?

II Chronicles 2:6 KJV (Solomon)
But who is able to build Him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain Him? who am I then, that I should build Him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before Him?

II Chronicles 6:18 KJV (Solomon)
But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!

Nehemiah 9:6 KJV
Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshipeth thee.

Psalm 148:4 KJV
Praise Him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

Although there were various views about the heavens, the one early believers settled on was that, the atmosphere around the earth, was the first heaven. The starry universe, with all its marvels, was the second heaven. And the Third Heaven, was beyond the universe, and it was God's residence, described in Revelation chapters 21 & 22.

(Some of you dear friends ask that all scripture, please be listed, because you may not have a Bible, so we will!)

Revelation 21:1-27 KJV
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her Husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be His God, and he shall be My son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, The Lamb's wife.
10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
22 And I saw no temple therein: for The Lord God Almighty and The Lamb are the temple of it.
23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and The Lamb is the light thereof.
24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in The Lamb's book of life.

Revelation 22:1-21 KJV
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of The Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of The Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him:
4 And they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for The Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and The Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to shew unto His servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End, The First and The Last.
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent Mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am The Root And The Offspring Of David, and The Bright And Morning Star.
17 And The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Paradise, today is in the third heaven (a subject in itself).

Luke 23:43 KJV (Jesus, promised the repentant thief on the cross.)
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with Me in paradise.
(But, they didn't stay there.)

Ephesians 4:8-10 KJV
8 Wherefore He saith, When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9 (Now that He ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things.)

Ephesians 4:8-10 NLT
8 That is why the Scriptures say, “When He ascended to the heights, He led a crowd of captives
and gave gifts to His people.”
9 Notice that it says “He ascended.” This clearly means that Christ also descended to our lowly world.
10 And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that He might fill the entire universe with Himself.

Paradise (Luke 16:19-31), was caught up to the third heaven. (This is further explained in my soon to be released book on Amazon Kindle called.... “SALVATION-we are not afraid!”)

In heaven is the tree of life, and the river of life.

Revelation 2:7 KJV
"...To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. And also Revelation 22:1-5 KJV.

Dear friend, have you received The Savior? Will your eternal home be heaven?

John 14:1-6 KJV
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me.
2 In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto Him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto Him, I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life: no man cometh unto The Father, but by Me.

II Corinthians 5:1 KJV
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Philippians 3:20 KJV
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for The Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ:

I Peter 1:3,4 KJV
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

Revelation 22:14 KJV
Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Acts 2:21 KJV
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of The Lord shall be saved.

Bible Lesson: Parables-Our Lord's: Unclean Spirits.

Bible Lesson: Parables-Our Lord's: Unclean Spirits.

Occasion: The Scribes And Pharisees Demand A Sign From Jesus.

Lesson: Binding Power Of Unbelief.

Bible Text: Matthew 12:38,39:43-45 KJV/Mark 3:22-30/ Luke 11:24-26 KJV

Matthew 12:22-24;38,39;43-45 KJV
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this The son Of David?
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
(Jesus replied saying...)
38 One day some teachers of religious law and Pharisees came to Jesus and said, “Teacher, we want you to show us a miraculous sign to prove your authority.”
39 But Jesus replied, “Only an evil, adulterous generation would demand a miraculous sign..."
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Mark 3:22-30 KJV
22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth He out devils.
23 And He called them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
29 But he that shall blaspheme against The Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

Luke 11:14-16;24-26 KJV (Scribes & Pharisees-Unpardonable Sin.)
14 And He was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.
15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. (See also Matthew 12:24)
16 And others, tempting Him, sought of Him a sign from heaven.
(And He replied, saying...)
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.
25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

Matthew 12:38,39 KJV
38 One day some teachers of religious law and Pharisees came to Jesus and said, “Teacher, we want you to show us a miraculous sign to prove your authority.”
39 But Jesus replied, “Only an evil, adulterous generation would demand a miraculous sign..."

Luke 11:14-16;24-26 KJV (Scribes & Pharisees-And Their Unpardonable Sin.)
14 And He was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.
15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.
16 And others, tempting Him, sought of Him a sign from heaven.

Jesus warned them....
Matthew 12:31,32 KJV
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against
The Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against The Son Of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against The Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

In Matthew 12:39 KJV...Jesus stated that ““Only an evil, adulterous generation would demand a miraculous sign..."

When the Scribes and Pharisees attributed the works of Jesus to Satan, The Lord warned them, of committing the unpardonable sin, of sinning against God The Holy Spirit.

John 3:5 KJV
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of
The Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Jesus then went on to give this parable:

Matthew 12:43-45 KJV
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Matthew 12:43 KJV
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man,”
This only happens, by the “power of God.” Jesus cast out demonic spirits.
They do not wish to leave their host willingly, they must be “cast-out.”

Luke 8:26-30 KJV (Jesus and His disciples arrive at Gadara.)
26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee.
27 And when He went forth to land, there met Him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs.

Matthew 8:28 KJV
"exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way."

Mark 5:3-5 KJV
3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

Luke 8:28-30 KJV
28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not.
29 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.)
30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him.

Marks Of The Possessed:

verse 27 Wore no clothes.
verse 27 lived among the tombs.
Matt. 8:28 Exceeding Fierce
Mark 5:4 Could not be bound with chains.
Mark 5:4 Could not be tamed.
Mark 5:5 Night and day, crying and cutting himself.
verse 29 Possessed with unclean spirits.
verse 29 driven by the devil, into the wilderness.
verse 30 Possessed with legion, not one unclean spirit, but with many hundreds of spirits.
verse 33 Seek to Possess.
Verse 33 Bring death.

Luke 8:31-33 KJV
31 And they besought Him that he would not command them to go out into the deep (hell).
32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought Him that He would suffer (permit) them to enter into them. And He suffered them.
33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.

Matthew 12:43 KJV
he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

Closest thing to hell, would be a scorching desert, the home of unclean spirits, but they find no rest.

Isaiah 48:22 KJV
There is no peace, saith The Lord, unto the wicked.

Revelation 14:11 KJV
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Matthew 12:44 KJV
Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.”

I Corinthians 6:19 KJV
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of The Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

A temple, is made to “house,” someone! Who is in your temple?
God created man to be “The Temple Of The Holy Spirit.”
But if a person is not God's child, his temple is empty, just waiting to be filled. And unclean spirits look for just such a house!

Matthew 12:45 KJV
Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Unclean spirits, can think, can rationalize, can recruit!
They know that they can be cast out, so they call other evil spirits, more evil and powerful than themselves, to “join them,” in inhabiting the house, so that they may “never-again,” be cast out!

And our Lord says....
and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.”

Why is our Lord telling the Scribes and Pharisees this parable?
Because if once they were in innocence, they certainly no longer are! They have committed the unpardonable sin, by blaspheming God's Spirit.
and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”

Now our Lord, ends this parable with a very interesting observation....
Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.”

As it is with men, so to it is with nations!

May nations themselves go beyond the forgiveness of Almighty God?

Psalm 9:17 KJV
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God..."

Proverbs 14:34 KJV
Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

Mankind has had it's days of innocence and its Dark Ages, where backwardness, death and decline was the rule of the day. And also its time of Renaissance, a time of rebirth and life.

Men and nations must choose.

Hebrews 2:1-18 KJV
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him;
4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of The Holy Ghost, according to His own will?
5 For unto the angels hath He not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?
7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honor, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
10 For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make The Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11 For both He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
13 And again, I will put My trust in Him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given Me.
14 For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham.
17 Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a Merciful and Faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
18 For in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour (help) them that are tempted.

Men or nations:

Genesis 4:7 NLT (God speaking to Cain.)
You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.

James 5:9 KJV
"...behold, the judge standeth before the door.

Sixth Commandment-Exodus 20:13

Bible Questions Answered:
“If God commands no killing, how then christian people be at war?...”
Wasana/ Khan Kaen, Thailand

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:
Exodus 20:13 KJV
Thou shalt not kill*.

The answer is in the word “kill*.”

Kill-Hebrew: Ratsach (Raw-tsakh): To dash to pieces, i.e. kill (a human being), murder:-to put to death, kill (man slay) murder.
(Abingdon Strong's -Concordance.)

The unlawful and malicious* or premeditated killing of one human being by another;"
To Kill (a person) unlawfully and with malice.
(New World Dictionary)

Desire to harm another. (Hate)
(New World Dictionary)

Murder committed with malice aforethought, characterized by deliberation or premeditation or occurring during the commission of another serious crime, as robbery or arson (first-degree murder)

Exodus 20:13 NLT
You must not murder.

This was not to kill in war, because even God had His people, conquer “heathen-nations,” through war. It must be well remembered though, God had dealt with these heathen nations time after time, but they would not repent of their evil deeds.

New Living Translation, renders this verse as murder, and that is what the Hebrew word “ Ratsach,” is.

Murder is with hate, and premeditation.
Murder is such a heinous crime, that God warned Moses saying....

Numbers 35:1,30-34 NLT (Capital Punishment.)
1 While Israel was camped beside the Jordan on the plains of Moab across from Jericho, The Lord said to Moses,
30 “All murderers must be put to death, but only if evidence is presented by more than one witness. No one may be put to death on the testimony of only one witness.
31 Also, you must never accept a ransom payment for the life of someone judged guilty of murder and subject to execution; murderers must always be put to death.
32 And never accept a ransom payment from someone who has fled to a city of refuge, allowing a slayer to return to his property before the death of the high priest.
33 This will ensure that the land where you live will not be polluted, for murder pollutes the land. And no sacrifice except the execution of the murderer can purify the land from murder.
34 You must not defile the land where you live, for I live there myself. I am The Lord, who lives among the people of Israel.”


Numbers 35:16-21 NLT
16 “But if someone strikes and kills another person with a piece of iron, it is murder, and the murderer must be executed.
17 Or if someone with a stone in his hand strikes and kills another person, it is murder, and the murderer must be put to death.
18 Or if someone strikes and kills another person with a wooden object, it is murder, and the murderer must be put to death.
19 The victim’s nearest relative is responsible for putting the murderer to death. When they meet, the avenger must put the murderer to death.
20 So if someone hates another person and pushes him or throws a dangerous object at him and he dies, it is murder.
21 Or if someone hates another person and hits him with a fist and he dies, it is murder. In such cases, the avenger must put the murderer to death when they meet.

God Knows Our Heart:

Job 42:1,2 KJV
1 Then Job answered The Lord, and said,
2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be with holden from thee.

Psalm 94:11 KJV
The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man..."

Proverbs 23:7 KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he..."

Jeremiah 17:9 KJV
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Proverbs 20:27 MSG
God is in charge of human life, watching and examining us inside and out.

How careful we must be of our thoughts, our desires!

Ephesians 4:26,27 KJV
26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.

The severity of judgment upon murder, speaks volumes of God's view of the sanctity of life!
Mankind was forever created in the “image of God.”
And be it of men or babies, murder is murder, and murders will one day answer to Almighty God.

Oh, how wonderful, beyond earthly understanding, are those all forgiving words....
I John 1:9 KJV
If we confess our sins, He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Yes, true for murders, and all other sinners.

Abram And Hagar

Bible Questions Answered:
“Was it right that Abraham slept with Hagar?”
Shelby/ Brisbane, Australia, (Queensland)

Bible Answer:

No, it was not right.

Genesis 16:1-5 KJV
1 Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.
2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, The Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me and thee.

Abram had, before been promised by God...

Genesis 15:1-6 KJV
1 After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.
2 And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
4 And, behold, the word of The Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
6 And he believed in The Lord; and He counted it to him for righteousness.

Just as Adam had listened to the voice of his wife, and eaten of the forbidden fruit, Abram, listen to his wife. No doubt Abram and Sarai, reasoned because of their age, certainly God must have had something else in mind. Sarai, reasoned that she and Abram, could have children through her handmaid Hagar. In their day, Eastern Codes suggest this may have been the custom of some ( such as the Hammurabi Code.)

Abraham knew this was not right, i.e. having a child by means of polygamy. For since the beginning whereupon God instituted the institution of marriage, one man and one wife was God's plan!

Genesis 2:23,24 KJV
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Matthew 19:4-6 KJV (Jesus)
4 And He answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

(Having a Christian Wedding in the near future? Be sure your Public Announcement reads that it is a

One man, and one woman, God's plan for marriage, no other group can claim to have a

In Genesis, marriage is defined by God as being heterosexual monogamy, this has always been His plan!

Proverbs 5:15-23 NLT
15 Drink water from your own well—share your love only with your wife.
16 Why spill the water of your springs in the streets, having sex with just anyone?
17 You should reserve it for yourselves. Never share it with strangers.
18 Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 She is a loving deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts satisfy you always. May you always be captivated by her love.
20 Why be captivated, my son, by an immoral woman, or fondle the breasts of a promiscuous woman?
21 For The Lord sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes.
22 An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him.
23 He will die for lack of self-control; he will be lost because of his great foolishness.

Hebrews 13:4 NLT
Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.

Genesis 18:10-14 NLT (Theophany - The Pr-Incarnate Lord Jesus.)
10 Then one of them said, “I will return to you about this time next year, and your wife, Sarah, will have a son!” Sarah was listening to this conversation from the tent.
11 Abraham and Sarah were both very old by this time, and Sarah was long past the age of having children.
12 So she laughed silently to herself and said, “How could a worn-out woman like me enjoy such pleasure, especially when my master—my husband—is also so old?”
13 Then The Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she say, ‘Can an old woman like me have a baby?’
14 Is anything too hard for The Lord? I will return about this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”

Genesis 21:1-3,5 NLT
1 The Lord kept His word and did for Sarah exactly what He had promised.
2 She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God had said it would.
3 And Abraham named their son Isaac.
5 Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born. (Sarah, herself was some 90 years young.)

When we do things God's way, there are blessings, and eternal rewards!

Hebrews 11:8-12 KJV
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.
12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
