In 1st Corinthians 11, it says that a man dishonors his head when he covers his head while praying but a woman should be covered. I know it’s talking about submission to authority and headship, but I was thinking of the Jewish people. When the Jewish men pray, they have a yamakah (sp?) on their head, or perhaps even a tallit, but the women don’t. What was Paul meaning when he wrote this passage – specifically, should women be wearing some covering when they pray?
My dearest friend and I were discussing Genesis 48:13-22 last night. What is the significance of Israel giving Ephraim the blessing instead of Manasseh? We know it displeased Joseph, but we wonder if it had anything to do with Jacob himself because of his deception with Isaac and Esau. We would like to know what you can glean from these scriptures.
I know we can’t add to God’s word, but sometimes what is left unsaid leaves us wanting more info. Maybe that’s God’s purpose?
Thank you again for this site. I have been so blessed from your gift.
I was wondering what the words “he who overcomes” mean when Jesus was addressing the churches in Revelation. What does it mean in the original language? Some say it is one who is born again. Or, does it mean whoever overcomes the problem Jesus is addressing to that particular church?
Who of us is an overcomer? I am really trying to listen to the Holy Spirit as He nudges me but most of all I hold tight to the righteousness given to me by the Lord by accepting Christ’s gift of salvation.
Where in the Bible can I find answers to why so many ministers today are going through so many trials and roadblocks as they try to preach the Gospel and lead their churches? Isn’t there a verse that talks about the trials and testing we go through the closer our walk is with Christ?
I don’t know about you but I feel like I’m going to be the only Christian without a crown. I’m not sure I’ve ever done anything without some sort of hidden selfish motive. Even when I think I’m being selfless, just thinking that suddenly ruins everything. I guess I’ll just be grateful finally being with the Lord. That will be my reward. Being sinless and being with him is reward in itself. I can’t wait!!!
