Temple Of God

Bible Questions Answered:
“In 1 Corinthians 3:16 ”the temple of God” is Paul speaking about a christian or a group of believers?...”
Tom/ Charlottesville, Virginia U.S.A.

Bible Answer:
Bible Texts:

I Corinthians 3:16,17 NLT
16 Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you?
17 God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

II Corinthians 6:16 NLT
And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of The Living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be My people.

The grammatical context tells us that the Apostle was speaking about the church, for the pronouns and verb endings are in the plural.

Plural; The Church:

I Corinthians 1:10-17 NLT (Factions in the Church of Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 3:17 KJV God will destroy anyone who destroys this temple.)
10 I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.
11 For some members of Chloe’s household have told me about your quarrels, my dear brothers and sisters.
12 Some of you are saying, “I am a follower of Paul.” Others are saying, “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Peter,” or “I follow only Christ.”
13 Has Christ been divided into factions? Was I, Paul, crucified for you? Were any of you baptized in the name of Paul? Of course not!
14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius,
15 for now no one can say they were baptized in my name.
16 (Oh yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas, but I don’t remember baptizing anyone else.)
17 For Christ didn’t send me to baptize, but to preach the Good News—and not with clever speech, for fear that the cross of Christ would lose its power.

I Corinthians 3:3,4 NLT
3 for you are still controlled by your sinful nature. You are jealous of one another and quarrel with each other. Doesn’t that prove you are controlled by your sinful nature? Aren’t you living like people of the world?
4 When one of you says, “I am a follower of Paul,” and another says, “I follow Apollos,” aren’t you acting just like people of the world?

In a singular sense:

I Corinthians 3:16,17 KJV
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that The Spirit Of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

The Choices, words and actions of men, can destroy the temple of God.

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.

I Corinthians 6:19,20 KJV
19 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?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

In a real sense The Temple Of The Holy Spirit, is both the individual and the church.
And what is true for the one, is also true for thee other.

Question: May The Church, the temple of God be defiled, awaiting the judgment of God?
Answer: Yes.

Defiled by divisions, sins, false doctrines, scorning the teachings of The Virgin Birth, The Cross, The Atoning Blood Of Christ, The Sanctity Of Life Of The Unborn, etc. etc. etc.

I Corinthians 16:22 KJV
If any man love not The Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.

Question: May the physical body, the purposed temple of God's Spirit, be found awaiting the judgment of God?
Answer: Yes.

Defiled by sins of the flesh, sexual promiscuity, perversions, drugs, alcohol, hatred, murder, etc. etc.


Psalm 40:2 KJV
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a Rock, and established my goings.

Romans 3:23 KJV
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 6:23 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but The Gift Of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All of humanity since and including Adam, are under the curse of sin, “no exceptions!

David said he was in a horrible pit.
Mankind is in a deep, terrible, mirey pit, lost in their sins.
Above the pit, where the Light is, we hear a voice, it is the voice of Jesus, He says, here take my life line, and He throws a rope deep down into the pit. Many thankfully say, thank you Lord, and take His life line to safety and life. Some others refuse Jesus and His life line, cutting it to pieces.

So here is the question, how may these ever be saved?
Answer, they may never be saved, for they by their own hands have severed the only Life Line there is!
This is the (blasphemy against The Holy Ghost. Matthew 12:31 KJV)

Everyone in hell, and who is ever going there, has committed, or will commit the sin of blaspheming The Holy Spirit Of God.

Christian people, how carefully we should live.

Luke 1:74,75 KJV
74 That He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear,
75 In holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life.

II Corinthians 7:1 KJV
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Hebrews 12:14 KJV
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see The Lord:

I Peter 1:16 KJV
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

II Peter 3:11 KJV
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

Revelations 19:6-9 KJV
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for The Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: for the marriage of The Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of The Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Bible Questions Answered:
“...our neighborhood prayer group, some 15 of us meet and discuss current events, and read from your blog postings. Some were wondering who suffered from depression, and if the Bible might have a thing to say concerning that...”
Will/ Pasadena, California U.S.A.

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:

There was a man who had in his employ a young boy. One day in a fit of depression and anger, the man threw a sword at the young boy, but he escaped.

Had this man inherited a pair of genes, too tight, taking his breath away, thus making him ill-tempered towards others?

Some would call in the doctor, the psychiatrist, the psychologist, or psychoanalyst etc. but this was 1063 B.C., and there weren't any.

The man was King Saul, his young servant, a giant killer by the name of David.

How had a man chosen by God to be king fallen into such a sorry state?

I Samuel 15:1-9 NLT
1 One day Samuel said to Saul, “It was The Lord who told me to anoint you as king of His people, Israel. Now listen to this message from The Lord!
2 This is what The Lord Of Heaven’s Armies has declared: I have decided to settle accounts with the nation of Amalek for opposing Israel when they came from Egypt.
3 Now go and completely destroy[a] the entire Amalekite nation—men, women, children, babies, cattle, sheep, goats, camels, and donkeys.”
4 So Saul mobilized his army at Telaim. There were 200,000 soldiers from Israel and 10,000 men from Judah.
5 Then Saul and his army went to a town of the Amalekites and lay in wait in the valley.
6 Saul sent this warning to the Kenites: “Move away from where the Amalekites live, or you will die with them. For you showed kindness to all the people of Israel when they came up from Egypt.” So the Kenites packed up and left.
7 Then Saul slaughtered the Amalekites from Havilah all the way to Shur, east of Egypt.
8 He captured Agag, the Amalekite king, but completely destroyed everyone else.
9 Saul and his men spared Agag’s life and kept the best of the sheep and goats, the cattle, the fat calves, and the lambs—everything, in fact, that appealed to them. They destroyed only what was worthless or of poor quality.

Saul rejected by The Lord

10 Then The Lord said to Samuel,
11 “I am sorry that I ever made Saul king, for he has not been loyal to Me and has refused to obey My command.” Samuel was so deeply moved when he heard this that he cried out to The Lord all night.
12 Early the next morning Samuel went to find Saul. Someone told him, “Saul went to the town of Carmel to set up a monument to himself; then he went on to Gilgal.”
13 When Samuel finally found him, Saul greeted him cheerfully. “May The Lord bless you,” he said. “I have carried out The Lord’s command!”
14 “Then what is all the bleating of sheep and goats and the lowing of cattle I hear?” Samuel demanded.
15 “It’s true that the army spared the best of the sheep, goats, and cattle,” Saul admitted. “But they are going to sacrifice them to The Lord your God. We have destroyed everything else.”
16 Then Samuel said to Saul, “Stop! Listen to what The Lord told me last night!” “What did he tell you?” Saul asked.
17 And Samuel told him, “Although you may think little of yourself, are you not the leader of the tribes of Israel? The Lord has anointed you king of Israel.
18 And The Lord sent you on a mission and told you, ‘Go and completely destroy the sinners, the Amalekites, until they are all dead.’
19 Why haven’t you obeyed The Lord? Why did you rush for the plunder and do what was evil in The Lord’s sight?”
20 “But I did obey The Lord,” Saul insisted. “I carried out the mission He gave me. I brought back King Agag, but I destroyed everyone else.
21 Then my troops brought in the best of the sheep, goats, cattle, and plunder to sacrifice to The Lord your God in Gilgal.”
22 But Samuel replied,
What is more pleasing to The Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to His voice?
Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.
23 Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols. So because you have rejected the command of the Lord, He has rejected you as king.”

I Samuel 16:1 NLT
1 Now The Lord said to Samuel, “You have mourned long enough for Saul. I have rejected him as king of Israel, so fill your flask with olive oil and go to Bethlehem. Find a man named Jesse who lives there, for I have selected one of his sons to be My king.”
13 So as David stood there among his brothers, Samuel took the flask of olive oil he had brought and anointed David with the oil. And The Spirit Of The Lord came powerfully upon David from that day on. Then Samuel returned to Ramah.

I Samuel 18:6-11 NLT
6 When the victorious Israelite army was returning home after David had killed the Philistine, women from all the towns of Israel came out to meet King Saul. They sang and danced for joy with tambourines and cymbals.
7 This was their song:
Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands!”
8 This made Saul very angry. “What’s this?” he said. “They credit David with ten thousands and me with only thousands. Next they’ll be making him their king!”
9 So from that time on Saul kept a jealous eye on David.
10 The very next day a tormenting spirit from God overwhelmed Saul, and he began to rave in his house like a madman. David was playing the harp, as he did each day. But Saul had a spear in his hand,
11 and he suddenly hurled it at David, intending to pin him to the wall. But David escaped him twice.

I Samuel 16:14-23 NLT
14 Now The Spirit Of The Lord had left Saul, and The Lord sent a tormenting spirit that filled him with depression and fear.
15 Some of Saul’s servants said to him, “A tormenting spirit from God is troubling you.
16 Let us find a good musician to play the harp whenever the tormenting spirit troubles you. He will play soothing music, and you will soon be well again.”
17 “All right,” Saul said. “Find me someone who plays well, and bring him here.”
18 One of the servants said to Saul, “One of Jesse’s sons from Bethlehem is a talented harp player. Not only that—he is a brave warrior, a man of war, and has good judgment. He is also a fine-looking young man, and The Lord is with him.”
19 So Saul sent messengers to Jesse to say, “Send me your son David, the shepherd.”
20 Jesse responded by sending David to Saul, along with a young goat, a donkey loaded with bread, and a wineskin full of wine.
21 So David went to Saul and began serving him. Saul loved David very much, and David became his armor bearer.
22 Then Saul sent word to Jesse asking, “Please let David remain in my service, for I am very pleased with him.”
23 And whenever the tormenting spirit from God troubled Saul, David would play the harp. Then Saul would feel better, and the tormenting spirit would go away.

How had a King come to such a place as this?
By not obeying the commands of The Lord (disobedience to His Word.)
By anger and Jealousy, he opened a door to evil forces in his life.

Davids worship music (Psalms) help to keep the evil at bay.

If you are not “right,” with The Lord, get right, which means repentance for sin, faith, and obedience to His Word!

Fill your life with the things of God, His Word, His service, His people, His music, His everything etc. etc. into your life!

II Chronicles 7:14 KJV
If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

If you are a faithful Christian, believe The Word!

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for The Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

8 The Lord is their Strength, and He is the saving Strength of His anointed.

John 14:15-18 KJV
15 If ye love Me, keep My commandments.

Bible Lesson: Parables -Our Lord's: Faithfulness Of Servants.

Bible Lesson: Parables -Our Lord's: Faithfulness Of Servants.

Occasion: Time Of Testing.

Lesson: Faithfulness Leads To Reward.

Bible Texts:

Matthew 24:45-51 KJV
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That He shall make him ruler over all His goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 12:42-46 KJV
42 And The Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his Lord shall make ruler over His household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom His Lord when He cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a Truth I say unto you, that He will make him ruler over all that He hath.
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46 The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

The Master is away, but He has placed His trustee, His guardian in charge over all His land, goods and servants.
Reward, depends upon the guardians faithfulness.

Matthew 24:46,47 KJV
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That He shall make him ruler over all His goods.

Luke 12:42-44 KJV
42 And The Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his Lord shall make ruler over His household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom His Lord when He cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a Truth I say unto you, that He will make him ruler over all that He hath.

In the perfect world all would be fine, but our world is far, far from that. In our world, stewards, decide just how faithful they wish to be.

Jesus, here mentions the unfaithful steward.

Matthew 24:48-51 KJV
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 12:45,46 KJV
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46 The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

What were the downward steps of the unfaithful steward?
Faulty Reasoning:

Matthew 24:48 KJV
But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming;

Luke 12:45 KJV
But and if that servant say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming;

The Master did not arrive, when the steward, thought He should, and as a consequence, begins to think that His coming would be delayed.

His faulty reasoning, led to faulty actions, actions that did not reflect The Masters care and concern for His goods or servants.

Matthew 24:49 KJV
And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

The steward was once a mere servant as the others, but now he has become drunken with wine and power.

John Emerich Edward Dalberg (English Historian, 1834-1902) Once stated....
“Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Luke 12:45 KJV
...and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

What would be the Judgment of The Master, when He returns?

Matthew 24:50,51 KJV
50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 12:46 KJV
The Lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
Not, a demotion, but a degradation to the place of “weeping and gnashing of teeth,” a description Jesus gave to a place called, hell.

Matthew 8:12 KJV
But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 22:13 KJV
Then said The King to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 25:30 KJV
And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 13:28 KJV
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in The Kingdom Of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

So, we must ask ourselves, at this juncture, what was the import of our Lord's teaching to His disciples?

The glaring truths are:
We are His disciples.
We are His entrusted stewards, called to care for and to feed all His servants.
We are to be living expecting His imminent return.
We are to be faithful unto death.

Not to be faithful, means eternal loss of life, and eternal loss of reward.

Everyday “we” choose, just what kind of servant we are.

Revelation 22:11 KJV
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.

Matthew 16:24 KJV
Then said Jesus unto His disciples, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

Cain And Abel

Bible Questions Answered:
“About cain and abel, why did god like abel and hate cain. Did he like shepherds better?...”
Debby/ Columbus, Georgia U.S.A.

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:
Genesis 4:1-7 NLT
1 Now Adam had sexual relations with his wife, Eve, and she became pregnant. When she gave birth to Cain, she said, “With The Lord’s help, I have produced a man!”
2 Later she gave birth to his brother and named him Abel. When they grew up, Abel became a shepherd, while Cain cultivated the ground.
3 When it was time for the harvest, Cain presented some of his crops as a gift to The Lord.
4 Abel also brought a gift—the best portions of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The Lord accepted Abel and his gift,
5 but He did not accept Cain and his gift. This made Cain very angry, and he looked dejected.
6 “Why are you so angry?” The Lord asked Cain. “Why do you look so dejected?
7 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.”

Many in fleshly thinking trying desperately to solve this situation have said the following.

“Well what's involved here is simply that it doesn't say that Cain offered God the best of his crop, if he had he would have been accepted!”

Hogwash, this kind of treacherous thinking is veiled humanism!

The belief in human-based morality: a system of thought that is based on the values, characteristics, and behavior that are believed to be best in human beings, rather than on any supernatural authority

"The best man does, the better he is received by God"
This is the false religious belief that man is saved by religious works, and not by faith in the grace of God!

Isaiah 64:6 KJV
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

John 1:12-13 KJV
12 But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Romans 3:24 KJV
Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 2:8,9 KJV
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is The Gift Of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Titus 3:5,6 KJV
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of The Holy Ghost;
6 Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior;

OK, Pastor if acceptance wasn't based on how good their gifts were, what was acceptance based upon?”

That is the question, and few have sought the answer from The Lord.

To find the answer, we must see how Adam and Eve were restored by The Lord. Yes restored, for they did confess to The Lord, and they were sorry for their sin! Now let us not, be deceived, restored, “does not mean the cancellation of their reaping what they had sown!” Adam and Eve were asked to leave the garden of Eden, as part of their judgment of disobedience.

Proverbs 5:22 KJV
His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

Galatians 6:7 KJV
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Genesis 3:7-10; 21-24 KJV (Please read the whole story in Genesis chapter 3.)
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of The Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of The Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And The Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did The Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
22 And The Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of The Tree Of Life, and eat, and live for ever:
23 Therefore The Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of The Tree Of Life.

Hebrews 11:4 KJV
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

Thee answer is ….
Genesis 3:21 KJV
Unto Adam also and to his wife did The Lord God make coats of skins*, and clothed them.

*Skins-Hebrew: Owr (Ore): Skin, hide, leather.
(Abingdon's Strong's Concordance of the Bible.

The Lord, sacrificed the life of a Lamb, so that Adam and Eve could be clothed, and their sin covered.

This sacrifice, Adam and his wife, saw, and understood. A Lamb was sacrificed, for the covering of sin.
This (is believed that) they sacrificed themselves, and instructed their children to do so as well!

Under the Old Covenant, sins were “covered, by the blood of a Lamb. (prefiguring Christ The sinless Lamb Of God)”

Old Covenant:
Psalm 32:1 KJV
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Psalm 85:2 KJV
Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

Since the beginning, a spotless Lamb, was the sacrifice for offerings.

Abraham and Isaac:
Genesis 22:6-8 KJV
6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is The Lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide Himself a Lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

Please take the time to read Exodus chapter 12, about the spotless, Passover Lamb (a type of Christ).

Throughout The Word Of God, from Genesis to Revelation, Jesus is The Lamb Of God.

John 1:29 KJV
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold The Lamb Of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

John 1:36 KJV
And looking upon Jesus as He walked, he saith (John the Baptist), Behold The Lamb Of God!

Knowing this, Cain knew what sacrifice was required! God Himself had required it!

Genesis 4:3,4 KJV
3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto The Lord.
4 And Abel, he also brought of the first lings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And The Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

It would not be “vegetables,” that would bleed and die at Calvary, taking away the sins of the world, but the very Lamb Of God.



I John 1:7 KJV
But if we walk in The Light, as He is in The Light, we have fellowship one with another, and
The Blood Of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Revelation 1:5 KJV
And from Jesus Christ, who is The Faithful Witness, and The First Begotten Of The Dead, and
The Prince Of The Kings Of The Earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood,

Revelation 7:14 KJV
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in
the blood of The Lamb.


Romans 3:30 AMP
Since it is one and the same God Who will justify the circumcised by faith [which germinated from Abraham] and the uncircumcised through their [newly acquired] faith. [For it is the same trusting faith in both cases, a firmly relying faith in Jesus Christ].

Romans 5:8,9 KJV
8 But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

Galatians 3:8 AMP
And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify (declare righteous, put in right standing with Himself) the Gentiles in consequence of faith, proclaimed the Gospel [foretelling the glad tidings of a Savior long beforehand] to Abraham in the promise, saying, In you (Christ) shall all the nations [of the earth] be blessed.


Colossians 1:19,20 NLT
19 For God in all His fullness was pleased to live in Christ,
20 and through Him God reconciled everything to Himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

Ephesians 1:7 KJV
In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;

Colossians 1:14 KJV
In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
 I Peter 1:18-21 KJV
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with The Precious Blood Of Christ, as of A Lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

Hebrews 9:11-14 KJV
11 But Christ being come an High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
14 How much more shall The Blood Of Christ, who through the Eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Hebrews 9:12 KJV
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Hebrews 10:4-14 NLT
4 For it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
5 That is why, when Christ came into the world, He said to God, “You did not want animal sacrifices or sin offerings. But you have given Me a body to offer.
6 You were not pleased with burnt offerings or other offerings for sin.
7 Then I said, ‘Look, I have come to do your will, O God— as is written about Me in the Scriptures.’”
8 First, Christ said, “You did not want animal sacrifices or sin offerings or burnt offerings or other offerings for sin, nor were you pleased with them” (though they are required by the law of Moses).
9 Then He said, “Look, I have come to do your will.” He cancels the first covenant in order to put the second into effect.
10 For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.
11 Under the old covenant, the priest stands and ministers before the altar day after day, offering the same sacrifices again and again, which can never take away sins.
12 But our High Priest offered Himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then He sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand.
13 There He waits until His enemies are humbled and made a footstool under His feet.
14 For by that one offering He forever made perfect those who are being made holy.


Hebrews 10:15-20 KJV
15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies that this is so. For He says,
16 “This is the new covenant I will make with My people on that day, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”
17 Then He says, “I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds.”
18 And when sins have been forgiven, there is no need to offer any more sacrifices.
19 And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place
because of The Blood Of Jesus.
20 By His death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into
the Most Holy Place.


Revelation 12:11 KJV
And they overcame him by The Blood Of The Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.


Revelation 5:1-14 NLT
1 Then I saw a scroll in the right hand of the One who was sitting on the throne. There was writing on the inside and the outside of the scroll, and it was sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a strong angel, who shouted with a loud voice: “Who is worthy to break the seals on this scroll and open it?”
3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll and read it.
4 Then I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll and read it.
5 But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, The Lion Of The Tribe Of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
6 Then I saw a Lamb that looked as if it had been slaughtered, but it was now standing between the throne and the four living beings and among the twenty-four elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which represent the Sevenfold Spirit of God that is sent out into every part of the earth.
7 He stepped forward and took the scroll from the right hand of the One sitting on the throne.
8 And when He took the scroll, the four living beings and the twenty-four elders fell down before
The Lamb. Each one had a harp, and they held gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.
9 And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.
10 And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth.”
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.

"Question: Should we offer out very best to The Lord?"
Absolutely, but never forget our good anything, whatever you can name, was not nailed to the cross of Calvary to take away yours sins and mine. Only one did that, and that was God's Eternal Son The Lord Jesus Christ!

 Do you know this precious Lamb Of The Father?
Receive Him, now into your heart and life, for forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal blessings by His side.

Bible Questions Answered:
“If holy people do good and evil do evil then why the evil ones blessed...”
Tahseen/ Riyadh, (Riyadh Province) Saudi Arabia

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:
Solomon asked this question, centuries ago.

Ecclesiastes 3:16 NLT
I also noticed that under the sun there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt!

There seemed to be no justice.
But Solomon went on to say...

Ecclesiastes 3:17 NLT
I said to myself, “In due season God will Judge everyone, both good and bad, for all their deeds.”

The Psalmist once had such feelings of wonder over the inequities of life!

Psalm 73;1-28 KJV (Asaph)
1 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.

15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.

The Lord meets with His people at His altar:

Job 28:28 KJV
And unto man He said, Behold, the fear of The Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Psalm 111:10 KJV
The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do His commandments..."

Proverbs 1:7 KJV
The fear of The Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 2:5 KJV
Then shalt thou understand the fear of The Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

Proverbs 9:10 KJV
The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Proverbs 14:27 KJV
The fear of The Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

Proverbs 15:33 KJV
The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility.

(Psalm 73)
18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast held me by my right hand.
24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.

James 4:8 KJV
Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you..."

Psalm 37:1-40 KJV
1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in The Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in The Lord: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto The Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
6 And He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in The Lord, and wait patiently for Him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon The Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for He seeth that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but The Lord upholdeth the righteous.
18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of The Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
22 For such as be blessed of Him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of Him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by The Lord: and He delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for The Lord upholdeth him with His hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28 For The Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not His saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait on The Lord, and keep His way, and He shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is of The Lord: He is their Strength in the time of trouble.
40 And The Lord shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.

Psalm 49:1-20 NLT
1 Listen to this, all you people! Pay attention, everyone in the world!
2 High and low, rich and poor—listen!
3 For my words are wise, and my thoughts are filled with insight.
4 I listen carefully to many proverbs and solve riddles with inspiration from a harp.
5 Why should I fear when trouble comes, when enemies surround me?
6 They trust in their wealth and boast of great riches.
7 Yet they cannot redeem themselves from death by paying a ransom to God.
8 Redemption does not come so easily, for no one can ever pay enough
9 to live forever and never see the grave.
10 Those who are wise must finally die, just like the foolish and senseless, leaving all their wealth behind.
11 The grave is their eternal home, where they will stay forever. They may name their estates after themselves,
12 but their fame will not last. They will die, just like animals.
13 This is the fate of fools, though they are remembered as being wise. (Interlude)
14 Like sheep, they are led to the grave, where death will be their shepherd. In the morning the godly will rule over them. Their bodies will rot in the grave, far from their grand estates.
15 But as for me, God will redeem my life. He will snatch me from the power of the grave. (Interlude)
16 So don’t be dismayed when the wicked grow rich and their homes become ever more splendid.
17 For when they die, they take nothing with them. Their wealth will not follow them into the grave.
18 In this life they consider themselves fortunate and are applauded for their success.
19 But they will die like all before them and never again see the light of day.
20 People who boast of their wealth don’t understand; they will die, just like animals.

What is the end of the matter?

Ecclesiastes 11:11-13 KJV
11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before Him:
13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall He prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.

II Corinthians 4:17,18 KJV
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

II Corinthians 5:10 KJV
For we must all appear before The Judgment Seat Of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Romans 8:28 KJV
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.
