#3 Comment on John 4:18
You know, you make a good point, zcostilla. I digress.
You know, come to think of it, Jesus was probably making a point about spiritual and physical marriage in this narrative.
She was used as an example by God of the adultery and the marriage of the Northern lands to five husbands, and they did not know God living in sin in a defacto relationship in Samaria. The woman at the well is a powerful allegory and also a lesson on marriage.
Which brings us to your point:
Regarding her personal life, this sequence appears to show firstly, the woman had been married five times under the law and each one was recognized as a legitimate marriage by Messiah. She was currently living with a man but that arrangement was not recognized to be a marriage by Messiah. Thus Messiah produced doctrine in this way. He recognized multiple marriages as there is no indication that this woman had been widowed five times. Indeed the law allows remarriage as we see above. Secondly, Christ ruled here on de facto marriage, pronouncing it as no legitimate marriage.
Just some more thoughts on your very good observation :)

As I live, saith the LORD, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on thee, as a bride doeth.For thy waste and thy desolate places, and the land of thy destruction, shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away.the children which thou shalt have, after thou hast lost the other, shall say again in thine ears, The place is too strait for me: give place to me that I may dwell.

#8 Comment on Psalms 76:10
This Verse means that all that happens in the world, nay, the Universe is what will be to the Praise of God's Glory ( what he wants, what he foretells, what he likes. what he warns against and why ) OR It Will NOT/Does NOT Happen. [ for example, See the Latest Presidential Election in the U.S.. ]
Also, as an aside - God forbid that He Himself through the Holy Spirit should speak in a clear plain speech in the language that the one speaking knows and already speaks, instead of this Gibberish called "Tongues".

#9 Comment on Luke 9:51
This verse has been misinterpreted down through the years. It is not alluding to our Lords Ascension, but of His 'going up' to Jerusalem to the Feast of Tabernacles. Why would His Ascension be in question this early when it is at least six months hence?. It makes no sense. The odd choice of words here...analempsis...would be better translated as His 'retirement'. The word before it, sumpleroo, means to be completed or accomplished. So, this is not speaking of His Ascension then. It means the time was come that Jesus must no longer retire from Judea and the area around Jerusalem. He had been staying around the Galilee to avoid the Jews' laying hold of Him before His ministry was ended, and full proof of His divine mission given, and some of the prophecies concerning Him accomplished. In those days, one 'went up' to Jerusalem to the feasts. Three that were required to attend in Jerusalem were Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. Here, Jesus is setting His sights on Jerusalem to 'go up' to the Feast of Tabernacles. The Hebrew reads, 'aliyah' meaning 'to go up'. So, this passage has nothing to do with His 'going up to Heaven', but 'going up' to Jerusalem...because He has to despite the Pharisees and 'Jews' that want to lay hold of Him.

#11 Comment on Song of Songs 3:7
In Song of Songs 3:7, “the bed, or resting place of King Solomon, stands in most striking contrast to the bed of carnal sloth and ease, spoken of by the Bride in verse 1 - the one, a place of idle security; the other of active service.” Adelaide Leaper Newton, “The Song of Solomon”

#12 Comment on Proverbs 5:18
The inseparable particle translated there as "In" is most often translated as "From," but that makes no sense in English. With the Hebrew verb used in this verse, this prefix altogether probably means "Get Pleasure from."

#15 Comment on Song of Songs 3:11
Song of Songs 3:11 speaks of the gladness of the Beloved Christ. Although we often consider our joy and satisfaction, we need to come a point in our love life with Him that we are more concerned about His pleasure than our own. Our goal and our ambition should only be to please Him (2 Cor. 5:9)!

#16 Comment on Revelation 6:2
The cross-references in the "cross-reference portal" here puts this verse in proper light. Many others have put the Revelation vision in a box called "seven years only". But I believe "the latter age" began when He "openly triumphed over powers and principalities" Colossians 2:15, "openly triumphing over them by the cross." To me, this makes the Seals of God to be (the) major elements of the "latter age", the years of our Lord, A.D.

#17 Comment on Acts 8:20
It was the gift of the holy spirit. See verses 18 & 19. Ask yourself what the gift of holy spirit was. Used for. Go back to Acts 2:4 First Holy Spirit was given them to preach about the magnificent things of God to other language groups. They were able to speak in their language so they could understand their message. Other gifts of the holy spirit that was used was healing. So then why did Simon in verse 18 really want the gift of holy spirit that he was willing to pay for it?

#24 Comment on Ephesians 1:13
Where is the Weymouth translation? That translation picks up the fact that Paul is now talking to the Gentile believers, As opposed to the Saints, ( Holy ones or separated ones or the Jews) In the first 12 verses Paul speaks of us and we meaning the Jews of which he is one. In verse 13 he speaks to "you also", meaning the Gentiles.

#25 Comment on Romans 1:30
It is interesting to note that the book of Romans is addressed in verse 7, "To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people." This indicates that he is addressing adults as well as children, but primarily adults. So when Paul ends the list of despicable traits displayed by "those who suppress the truth" (v. 18), with "disobedient to parents," (v.30) he is addressing a mostly adult audience. Therefore it is not just for children under 18 years of age to obey, in some translations "yield to" and "respect," their parents. It is for everyone at every age to obey, yield to and respect their parents. This is supported in the teaching of Jesus in Mark 7:9-13. Maybe it is even more important for adults to honor their parents, than children. Children are by nature imitators. Food for thought: if you want your children to honor you as a parent, do they have a good example to follow by watching you honor your parents?

#31 Comment on Zechariah 14:2
Zechariah 8The Restoration of JerusalemI lifted up my eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. 2Then said I, Where go you? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof. Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: 5For I, said the LORD, will be to her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the middle of her.Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, see, I come, and I will dwell in the middle of you, said the LORD. 11And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the middle of you, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. 12And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.kind david ruling at jersalem book 2 samual God tells david isreal going to another land.Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime.Prophecy against Gog. there coming my people.After many days you shall be visited: in the latter years you shall come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. 9You shall ascend and come like a storm, you shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your bands, and many people with you.And you shall say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn your hand on the desolate places that are now inhabited, and on the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the middle of the land.And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, said the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. gog is in your goverment civil war is coming. I will bring you against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in you, O Gog, before their eyes.heathen is the godless in the usa.For Tophet is ordained of old; yes, for the king it is prepared; he has made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, does kindle it.in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 8Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
9That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
10Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not to us right things, speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
11Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.Why thus said the Holy One of Israel, Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
13Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.
14And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water with out of the pit.

#33 Comment on Colossians 1:15
First born means the primary of those born, not the initial. Those born does not mean those created. She who is born carries with her essence of the one who bears her. He being created is made out of ingredients and the substance is there but not the essence. Khavvah was first named ishah because she came out of ish. The man is named red clay.
Before that was the Son. He is hayah as light (John 1) by YHWH who is hayahed all by self.
These are the first things we are told in the book that is not biology or physics but does not confuse biology and physics.
Who has seen the One born has seen the One bearing. Look at the primary One, then, later, you can see "the image" in the lesser born.
