Snake on a Pole

Snake on a Pole

The Bible is filled with stories that deal with mankind’s sin. God required animal sacrifices to represent the taking away of sin. But the strangest ‘sin’ story of all may be the ‘Snake On The Pole’ story. It’s short.

Wandering Israelites grumbled and complained against God. God sent snakes to bite and kill many of them. Moses prayed to God for help. God told Moses to make a bronze snake and put it on a pole. Numbers 21:4-9 So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and LIVE.

About 1450 years later we learn from Jesus Christ that He was the fulfillment of that strange story. He said:

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal LIFE.” John 3:15

The snake represented sin. The snake on the pole represented Christ on the cross. Jesus Christ BECAME OUR SIN. 2 Cor. 5:21 Our sin was put to DEATH on the cross. Jesus Christ literally paid for OUR SIN with His own flesh and blood.

Jesus mentioned the ‘snake on the pole’ story just before He uttered the most famous verse in the Bible:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal LIFE.” John 3:16

When we have faith in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross paying for our sin we are assured of eternal life with Him. By His stripes we are healed! Isaiah 53:5

Another famous story: The Lamb of God

His older cousin, John the Baptist said: “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”

On a fateful Friday the 13th an Angel of death killed all the firstborn in Egypt who were not protected by the blood of a lamb. Jesus was God’s sacrificial lamb. Exodus 11:4-6 and Exodus 12

Abraham sacrifices Isaac

The story of Abraham and Isaac is also a picture of Christ. God provided the required sacrifice for sin in Isaac’s place. Genesis 22:1-14

May you joyfully discover that the entire Bible, Old and New Testament, is ALL about Jesus Christ!

Here are some more facts:

♥  Almost 2000 years ago Jesus Christ rose from the grave after three days. He lives now and forever. He freely gives eternal life to all who truly believe in Him.

♥  When Jesus Christ died on the cross OUR SIN DIED on the cross.

♥  Jesus Christ is ‘perfect’. If we are IN Jesus Christ WE are made perfect. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17

♥  We are no longer separated from God. We are, by faith IN Jesus Christ and ‘born again’ into His family forever! John 3:3

‘The wages of sin are death but the FREE GIFT of God is eternal LIFE in Jesus Christ our Lord.’ Romans 6:23

If your faith is in Jesus Christ please Click HERE. He’s given us stuff to do.

  1. Jesus died on a single Pole and not a compound cross, Jesus became a sin offering and then a curse for us. Which was represented in His being left to hang after death on the pole and then removed before moonrise judicially

  2. Jesus was not the snake. the Serpent was defeated and impelled on a pole. It showed everyone in the camp that the snake is dead and if you look and believe you will live. In the same way, Jesus was lifted up too, and defeat Death (sin). Death by death. Jesus became the \”sin offering\”, because of our sin, and for us. The cross is victory over Satan. The cross is triumph – not defeat. The point is that Jesus did not become the snake or \”became sin\”, for he was and always was without sin – all the way through the cross. Jesus literally \”became\” a sin offering defeating sin and death.

  3. I don’t think the snake on the pole represents Jesus but sin that Jesus takes upon Himself to forgive sins. Jesus is lifted as is the snake only because Jesus is lifted up to take that sin upon himself.

  8. Well said Pastor….Amen

    Jesus saves.

  10. PASTOR AMOS mathebula says:

    Jesus Christ is the source of every good things.he’s the source of life,source of solutions,source of victory,source of happiness.of peace.source of joy.source of wisdom.so if u take Jesus Christ,u have everything.

  11. Amen

  12. Jesus Christ, my savior, has this year (2014) woken me up & I’ve repented, been reborn and must say I have never felt anything as beautiful as the Holy Spirit. God bless us all and may many more find & accept him.

  13. I completed a 20 day fast year for the puospre of enhancing my health and losing weight. When I was done, I had accomplished my goals, I lost considerable weight, reduced the amount of medications I was taking and felt great. There was some secondary advantages to the FAST as well. I drew closer to the Lord. This year, I am changing my priorities, I want to be everything God wants be to be in 2012, so my focus is to draw closer to him through this Fast with a secondary goal of weight, health etc. Okay, I know my priorities were mixed up last year, but even with the priorities mixed up what a blessing it was, I can’t wait to see what God does in my light with my priorities correct!!!!I can’t wait:)

  14. I think that not only is Jesus the 2nd snake on a pole, a better one than Moses held up, but Jesus is also the 2nd Manna, a better one than the Israelites ate in the desert and later died. Those who eat Jesus the true bread from heaven will never die.

  15. I think we should focus on Jesus since he embodied our sins in his body. Just like the Israelites we told to focus on the very thing killing them, their sin, and poisonous snake bites the consequence, so to we should focus on the answer to sin, Jesus. People want to focus on their sin instead of on Jesus who embodied sin being cursed hung from on a tree. John preached repentance, and even the Pharisees enjoyed this, Jesus said. That was only a forerunner of a better way. Grace through Jesus Christ. John’s way pointed us to Jesus, prepared our hearts. But Jesus is the Way. Focus on the answer and not the problem. Your sins, in fact the sins of the whole world were nailed to Jesus on the Cross. Focus on the answer and really live.

  16. To me Jesus is more like the 2nd Snake instead of the 2nd Adam.
    Is Jesus the 2nd snake to anyone else besides me?
    Mark of Mark’s Gospel fame seemed to imply Jesus was a snake.
    Mark says if we handle this snake and drink his poison we will live and not die. Appears to be a secret code for communion (bread and wine). Perhaps Saul was hot on the trail of the Christian’s and the Christians did not want unbelievers infiltrating Christianity as spies, so they knew that if they saw people taking this literally, they were the spies. Just a thought.

  17. Jesus is not the second Adam, not to me. Jesus is the 2nd Snake, to me.
    Just as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness for the Israelites to look at and be healed from the very thing killing them i.e. poisonous snakes, so too those who look upon the sin bearing and lifted up Christ on a cross will live and not die. Those who handle snakes and drink poison will not die, but live. Mark was right. Those who partake of the body(bread) of Christ(the snake on a pole) and drink his blood(snake’s poison) will live and not die. I think it is fine to remind kid’s to look upon the cursed Christ to remind them of the sins he carried for the life of the world. He was wounded for our transgressions.

  18. Thanksamundo for the post.Really thank you! Awesome. ebeakgeeeadd

  19. That’s probably what is being referred to in Mark’s Gospel below.
    This text I believe is not in all ancient manuscripts of Mark’s Gospel and could have been pulled out from a Gospel that was not accepted, but the person who wrote it wanted part of their Gospel preserved. Probably just a symbolic way of expressing Jesus as a snake on a pole, and his blood (what we drink) as the snake’s poison, and handling the snake as receiving the body of Christ (we take it as bread). Just a guess. Don’t hold me to it.

    Mark 16:17–18

    17 And and these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

  20. mark hutchinson says:

    This is why a person can only express faith alone in Christ alone for salvation.If God The Father accepted us on the basis of our strength our noble acts our own human good towards our fellow man etc……then God would compromise His Absolute Integrity(Absolute Righteousness&His Justice)Along with His Absolute Love,of which functions with His Integrity never by itself. The 3 work in harmony with each other never exclusivelyAnything God does for mankind is done in Grace We neither deserve or work for it Remember God is free to do anything He so desires because of who &What Christ is & what He accomplished on the Cross & it is all done in Grace We were born spiritually dead @ physical birth totally helpless & hopeless to save ourselves totally cut off &out of a meaningful relationship with our Creator/savior God .Realise &remember Adam & Eve were our facsimile parents When Adam sinned we in effect sinned hence condition @ physical birth totally out of any meaningful relationship with The God of the Universe & in a very sensitive condition so without compromising Himself & His Absolute Integrity His Love found the way of Deliverance from the PIT of hell & place us back in fellowship& a beautiful relational for all eternity & l am so without relieved He did The sad thing in all this is EEVERYONE in human history is potentially saved For it to become reality in one’s own personal life is for them to express faith alone in Christ alone & trust in His unique work of substitutionary spiritual death on our behalf PERIOD!!! Anything other than that cancels salvation for that person or people

  21. mark hutchinson says:

    God cannot die for our sins!!He can only condemn them.That’s why Jesus Christ had to become true humanity.Perfect humanity.Born of a virgin,conceived by God the Holy Spirit.He had no sin nature,had no personal sin& had no Adam’s sin.Latter being our reason for spiritual death @ physical birth.Condemnation must precede salvation.All God’s Grace.In fact God’s policy for mankind period.What’s grace?On the basis of everything Jesus Christ accomplished on the Cross God is free to do for man what He ordained in eternity past.Under the doctrinal truth of the Divine Decree.Jesus is the only savior of mankind.He’s the only way to God The Father We are mandated to believe in Jesus Christ &not only Christ but He who sent Him (God the Father)He Jesus Christ was perfect in every way.Not only that He totally fulfilled everything demanded by God the Father We could’t meet any of the demands dictated by His Absolute Perfection&Integrity
    Jesus is both truly God&true perfect humanity.The only person to qualify from physical birth.Not only that but the 33yrs He was on earth.Including the 6 hours on the cross.The last3hrs where all the sins of mankind were slammed on Christ’s powerful & perfect body & judged.Then He Himself gave up His own human life and only after all the sins had been judged when He died spiritually as our only Substitute for ouins Christ’s Substitutionary Spiritual Death is the basis of our so great salvation.

  26. Phiency Roy says:

    I am glad to tell you all about my discovery of a true christian faith in my life. I am a Christian Researcher, Evangelist and active member of the Catholic Church. I have been incorporated in the Catholic Church since 1995 after I have left the Presbyterian Church one of the denominations of the Protestant Church. According to my study of the Holy Bible and research of the Catholic Faith, it was found that there is one God only, the Lord Jesus Christ and one Divine Religion, the Catholic Church.
    My new study and research reveal that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit mean and stand for the Lord Jesus Christ alone. So, the Lord Jesus Christ is the same God of both Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible. I have written a book titled GOD IS ONE as a mark of my successful study and research and my greatest achievement in life. I keep the book in the website for public information and for global evangelization. I believe the book will be one of the best theological books for discovery proper divine realization. Please check my theological orientation and approach to New Age Theology, just click http://www.godlordjesuschrist.com to have a copy of the book for details.

    The Lord is my shepherd I love Jesus Christ !

  28. LeRoy Pina says:

    I am a sinner!! That is the cold hard truth,God did not make me to be a sinner but to be made right with God through my faith in Jesus Christ who is my lord and Savior. Anything else is a lie and a sin!!!!
    I know that I have been truly faithful to God by the way I have lived my life and that makes me sad but by becoming stronger in my faith I know (believe) that Jesus has and will always forgive my sins and lack of faith and that make me joyful. I don’t deserve the gift of His forgiveness but I believe His love for me is more than enough to save me. If we all strive to live in faith and trust Jesus(God)in our hearts all will be well for us and we WILL LIVE with HIM in Heaven forever!!! AMEN

    I love you Jesus Christ

  34. Genmar Santa Iglesia Bation says:

    Jesus, im a sinner, im begging you to forgive all my sins. I love you deeply

  35. Hi Mahmood, nice that you are trying to clarify your doubts. I’ll try to help you as much as I can.

    First of all there is a vast difference between Jesus and all the prophets and saints that ever lived on earth even if they died for faith and preaching coz simply dying for someone or all you don’t become God. Why ?

    1) I believe as Bible says that Jesus was born out of Virgin Mary. The first sign of HIM being God as He’s born by power.

    2) The countless impossible miracles performed by HIM. (RECORD BREAKING MIRACLES) not once, not twice but as many times as people needed. It was like a Child’s play to HIM. Do you know somebody like HIM who has done so without any difficulty. Bible says what he said at the time when people questioned HIM “who is HE to forgive sins? What did Jesus say : Which is easier to say your sins are forgiven or get up and walk to crippled man who was bed ridden for very many years I think I can also say that “your sins are forgiven” as stupid as I am but my dear I have to prove what I am saying. JESUS proved it. Please read Bible Luke Ch 5 vs 17-26.

    3) You must be knowing the phrase :- A blind cannot lead another blind. You need to be without sin to forgive other’s sin. Christ was sinless, spotless etc. because as far as I know upto this day the Researchers have failed to find any sin in HIM. I am 110% sure you will fail as well. So he’s our Saviour for HE has taken away our sins by sacrificing himself who was sinless. I know you will understand this.

    3)Where does He resides – Want to know ?
    i. Ask all those people who have received healing from HIM. Cancer patients getting healed. Lame walking, Blind seeing, Depressed people getting hope. Miracles after miracles are still taking place in just a mention of HIS name. HE IS ALIVE.

    ii. As for you ………. just call unto HIM from your heart and He will tell where he is.

    4. Your question about Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene is not clear. Anyway just to help you out Mother Mary the chosen beautiful, humble Lady to help God fulfill HIS mission. We honor her just as we honor our earthly mother. Just as we love and pray to Jesus so does she. We believe in Holy Trinity God. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Where Mary Magdalene is concerned please don’t be confused as she was a sinner who received God’s forgiveness and became a sincere disciple of our Lord.

    I can go on my dear but I don’t think you will read. BUT LET ME TELL YOU ONE THING THAT ………..”IT IS NOT YOU WHO IS IN SEARCH OF TRUTH BUT THE TRUTH IS IN SEARCH OF YOU.

    God bless.

  36. Yes, Right! God’s love is beyond our imagination. His love is greater than our sins, weaknesses, problems etc. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and ever ready to forgive me when I ask pardon. My heart rejoices when I realize what a wonderful God we have. The God of the universe. The one and only holy Trinity God. I Love You my Saviour, my Hero, my King my Everything. THANK YOU. THIS IS FOR YOU.

  37. I WANT TO FORGIVING ME I AM SIN PLASES FORGIVING ME I WANT TO SAVE ME AND HELP ME ON

  38. JesusChrist.comUnity says:

    His death paid for the sins of those who trust in Him.
    Jesus Christ’s paid for the sins of all those who truly love God. Regardless of when they lived on earth.
    Christ is at the right hand of God the Father.
    The two Marys were both sinners in need of a Savior, just like us.
    Not sure of your last statements.

    Blessing to you friend.

  39. so jesus christ died so that all sins of all humans past or present be nipped in the bud. He was the son of God . Was Moses also the son of God was Noah the same if not who they were since Moses died before Christ he carries his sins and so his folowers. Where does Christ reside now in the grave or keeps hanging, why was he hanged, can God be hanged. First it was Holy Mary now it is Mary Magdalene.Is communication gap correct if not why 12 testaments.Is 3000 years not a sufficient time which necessitated the creation of 12 testaments.
    Kindly clarify since I simply want to know the truth.
    With sincere regards

    Mahmood

  40. augustine says:

    i love my god and when u praise him like this i am greatly humbled.praise the lord

  41. Ifunanya Eugenia Okafor says:

    Jesus is the greatest.He is faithful,loving,caring,full of compassion and always forgives when we go wrong,a hero……ah!.infact i’m short of word because He’s too mighty.

  42. if u’ll watch the testament of Angelica Zambrano on Youtube. On what happened at her when she died and live. You cant imagine that god do it to wake all the peoples mind that we need god all the time.

  43. I want to finish my tohhgut here. If God treated us fairly Jesus would have never died on the cross. and we would have never been offered salvation. I praise God that He loves me, He never fails me and He goes to plan B and on. Look ho w He blessed Israel, they sinned and went away from God countless times, but He was faithful and loved them any way. Romans 5:8 But God commended His love toward us, in that while we were sinners Christ died for us. Praise be to God!

  44. Amen..god is good all the time..no man is good enough to enter gods kngdom on his own way but no bad persn is bad enough not to be save by jesus christ..it is just nw i realise the story in the old testament were all coordinated in the actions of jesus in the new testament.god blz us all

  45. I want to be rooted in lord my God

  46. Amen

  47. We r created in image of God and our body is a temple of God!!

  48. Scott, I appreciate the mettisenns. There are a number of pastors (and others, of course) making a very strong case for the sin of idolatry being the primary sin under-girding just about every other sin which we commit. Essentially, we commit idolatry whenever we put anything before God or worship anything else as God instead of the true God of the Bible. Very thought provoking stuff. One book (which I’m yet to read but is on my shelf) is by Tim Keller called Counterfeit Gods , but I’m sure there are others as well.

    the snake is the devil so we should no believe them…

  51. madhubag says:

    how difficult it is for rich to enter into the kingdom of God? but there is hope in him ,who believes ,Jesus is only the way to lead us into the heaven.it is your turn my friend , as in the time of Moses people looked the snake pole .today it is the cross where our Lord has hanged.whoever look into it ,whoever it may be, his must save and live forever and enter into the heaven.decision is your .whether you like to live or die,accepting to life and deny to death. Jesus loves you and knocking at the door.who listen and open the door he must dine with Jesus .also He open the gate of heaven.praise the Lord.

  52. the eye of the needle is what the small gate to the city was called..the main gate was very wide and open..JESUS says to enter by the narrow gate without all the unnessary things of the world,accept him as saviour and he will carry your load he will take your excess baggage….or go through the wide way to distruction your choice

  53. JesusChrist.comUnity says:

    Hello Mbewe,

    Go ahead and re-read the story first. Numbers 21:4-9

    Then remember that Jesus Christ said this: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal LIFE.” John 3:15

    The whole strange story was about Him. He had to be raised on a pole. He had to be crucified and die as payment for the sins of the world.

    All one must do is look to Him in faith and he will have eternal life.

    It is so easy my friend. Yet so profound.

    If you have more questions email Watchman@JesusChrist.com

    Blessings to you brother!

    Psalm 103

  67. there was a time when you made the commitment to your wife, so now you need to renew that commitment to her and just as you make a commitment to her you need to make the same commitment to God to not continue useing bath salts what ever that is. It is not worth loosing your walk with God if you follow him you will find he will not use bath salts.

  68. Na Gehlbach says:

    Greetings! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading through your blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Thank you!

  69. jonathan vercide pablo says:

    i,like very much to this post and i am not a church goer christian.. but on the time i read this, i realize how god loves me even his son he give to me to save me from my sins.. please i would like to post this items on my email add so that my family also can read and so to my friends…. thank you

  70. About 15 years ago I was abusing meth I hung out with people who used it so it was easy to get. I used for about 4 years. Then I fell in love with this girl who became my wife. She did not do drugs or drink alcohal. So i quit hanging out with those friends. And was clean for about 15 years only sliped a hand full of times. But now I came across bath salts and I’ve been useing since february. I’m just asking for forgiveness and prayers. For this and my porn addiction. Thank you god bless.

  71. Remember the word of God say, there is therefore no more condemnation for those who are in christ Jesus, and it goes to say again that we should BOLDLY, come to the throne of grace to receive mercy and grace in times of need. According to the word of God, Just ask God to manifest his power in your weakness, because your are the righteousness of God trough Jesus Christ our Lord.

  72. You might “fall”? Good news. Brother, if God had adopted you as a son, if you were made clean by the blood of His Lamb, Jesus Christ, He will not UN-adopt you. (John 10:28-30 “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[a]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”) Your falls will be ones you can always recover from. If your intent is to be one with the Lord and you live your life like it then all else (His will) will fall into place. Blessings to you!

    i am swazi university student,i thank God for having forgiven me all my sins.iam saved but i have jelous and even though i do help others i do not do it out of love.pride is my weakness.i do wish to show love others but most of the times i put foward my interests.please help me on what to do because i wouldnt wish to spend ertenity inhell.

  75. May the good Lord bless you all. amen

  76. That is TRUE LOVE> None grater.

  77. Let us be Crusaders in Christ and slay away with sin!!!

  78. No worry, God will make everything right just for you. Just have the faith of a child and pray to HIM, praise and worship Him daily.
    God Bless you. :p

  79. Ramble away brother!! Isaiah rambled too.

  80. I’m not very good at expressing myself. I am a sinner. I am not worthy of my lord Jesus. I am always at war with sins of the flesh. I feel like I am always being attacked by sin. I pray and talk to Jesus, beg for forgiveness and fall short again. It’s a straight and “very” narrow path. I am turning my life around. I am tuning back to Jesus with every ounce of my being. And will ask myself “what would Jesus do?” I love you my lord and shepherd and I thank you for dying for my sins. I know you love me too. Whenever a sinful thought comes to mind. I always say “in Jesus name be gone” it really works. I am so sorry for rambling. I love you all.

  81. NO the devil created sin whe he coned eve into breaking god gods law by eatting of the forbied fruit.

  82. Think about it there realy is a god out there that wants us to have eternal life that’s not 50 or 60 years that’s for ever and evr to be with a wounderfull god and he give us the chance but gave he’s 1 and only son to die so that we who does rong all the time we who doesn’t try enough could live and not be torchurd wot a wonderfull loving god , would you let your son be killed to save people ??? But god did so we need to live are lives for jesus and god and forget about how to make money or worry about things have faith and jesus will provide are daily bread for us.. Realy have a think about it and stop doin rong= sin god bless you all

  85. Bruce Heyns says:

    Dear All,

    I just came across this webpage and your comments. I am from Namibia and a born again christian. All I want to say is that we are forever, every second of our lives in the presence of GOD and can at anytime just speak out to God and if you truely believe you will receive. Remember when Jesus spoke to the fig tree what happened. You should have faith as small as a mustart seed thats all. My faith is as big as a Mango seed. God is good always and forever.

    May God bless you all.

    Warmest Regards

    Lord jesus,in as much as you love me and died for me,i still fall short of your by lying,stealing,invovling myself in sexual immoralities.please jesus,i really have the desire to keep your words and follow you,but am just so scared that my sins might have blocked my way of salvation.i need your peace and forgiveness in my life.i love you jesus.

  88. Who are you not to forgive yourself when Jesus will forgive you? You just need to ask for forgiveness.

  89. how can i learn to forgive myself?

  90. Father I have sinned, cheated, stole, adulterer, liar and just about every other bad thing you can think of. I’m not proud of myself but always find away to ignor you. I’m a person who believes in you but Falls short everyday. I want to please you but always find away to abuse you. I’m Luke warm Christian that you want nothing to do with. As many bad things that I am I know you love me and want me to be a faithful servant. Today oh lord please become my lord!!!!! Once again. Show me your path for me

  91. 4 every doubtin thomas out there, cease 2 b a doubtin thomas but a believing thomas, flee frm ur wicked ways 4 hell is not a place anyone should wish 2 go. D devil is tricky n can any how blind anyone’s heart frm seeing n believing. Remember, satan abjured solemnly that never will he be alone in the pit he and his angels were thrown into. Remember, the life u r living is not yours, Jesus took upon Himself our place of sin and gave us His place of righteousness. He loves us so much dat He deserves our love too. What would a loving Father do than preparing a place where every streets are made of Gold just for us that we may dwell with Him forever. May He see us through in our journey 2 Heaven.

  92. I would like to thnkx for that efforts you might have place in composing this website. I’m hoping the same high-grade website submit from you in the upcoming as well.

Your write up is actually a excellent example of it.

  93. Holy Toledo, so glad I ciclked on this site first!

  94. How could any of this be better stated? It coudln’t.

  95. It was dark when I woke. This is a ray of ssuhinne.

  96. Well put, sir, well put. I’ll cetrianly make note of that.

  97. That’s going to make tnhigs a lot easier from here on out.

  98. Gary Granato says:

    GOD doesn’t want robots to love HIM. Sin shows who loves GOD and who doesn’t. GOD knows already though. If GOD didn’t create sin, we’d all be robots. Being a robot and being programed to love, is not true love down here on earth.
    Earth is the testing ground for humans before eternity. Everything we do practically is sin, because we do things to please ourself and not GOD.
    So GOD shows us HIS love for us by sending HIS only SON to earth to take the punishment for our sin so we can experience eternal life when we die here on earth.
    Will you deny yourself for GOD? Will you love GOD by your own choice? Will you give up your earthly life to show your love of GOD?

  99. God is perfect. Why did he create sin?

  100. bibina te says:

    God is so God he always forgive our sin no matter
    what,but we must also do our very best not to commit sin anymore and ask, our guardian angel and the holy spirit to guide us and always pray every minuete of our life.
    Thank you and God bless you.

    I die everyday trying to rid myself of sin knowing that all have sinned and fallen short of his glory…but the prize in the maturity in him that we then can cast out demons, lay hands on the sick and they shall be healed, feed 5000 women and children with 2 fish and 5 loaves, raise the dead…all these things in Christ we should be doing, but no man every has demonstrated the anointing’s of Christ as well as the love and saved his people…Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name under heaven given amongst men whereby we must be saved…I miss the Daniel’s and Moses’ and Abrahams, and Jacob’s, they never had the holy spirit of power and they saved nations…we can’t even save ourselves with the fire and power of the spirit…thank you Lord as my spirit is saddened by our weaknesses and lack of ability to renewing our spirits, excepting and yielding to the spirit, and doing the work of Kingdom…

  102. Elibe Collins says:

    And you know what Charles. It must have been somewhere in the bible. Otherwise it wouldn’t have been mentioned here.
    Even I am waiting for the answer to your question.

  113. Charles says:

    How do you know the Angel came to kill the first born on Friday the 13th? It does not say that anywhere in my Bible.

  114. Justine says:
