Proving The Bible Is The Word Of God

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:20-21.)

More On The Millennium

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The recent re-posting of my article on Restoring Planet Earth has sparked some new interest in the Millennium. Many people find it hard to understand how such a seemingly perfect beginning could deteriorate into a massive rebellion at the end. The simple answer is “natural man” but let’s take a more comprehensive look.

The Ashes Of A Red Heifer

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron: “This is a requirement of the law that the Lord has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer without defect or blemish and that has never been under a yoke. Give it to Eleazar the priest; it is to be taken outside the camp and slaughtered in his presence. Then Eleazar the priest is to take some of its blood on his finger and sprinkle it seven times toward the front of the tent of meeting. While he watches, the heifer is to be burned—its hide, flesh, blood and intestines. The priest is to take some cedar wood, hyssop and scarlet wool and throw them onto the burning heifer” (Numbers 19:1-6).

Savage Wolves

Commentary by Jack Kelley

I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them” (Acts 20:29-30).

It didn’t take long for Paul’s warning to the elders of the Church in Ephesus to come true. Within the lifetimes of the original apostles false teachers had invaded the Church and were spewing their doctrines around wherever they went.

No One Knows The Day Or The Hour

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Those who ignore the study of end times prophecy are fond of quoting this famous line which appears in various forms in Matt. 24:36, Matt. 24:42,44, Matt. 24:50 and Matt 25:13 as their justification.  But earlier in the same passage, the Lord had admonished all who would read His words of prophecy to understand them (Matt 24:15) and elsewhere the Apostle Paul wrote that the events leading up to the end of the age should not take believers by surprise (1 Thes 5:4) implying that we should have done enough homework to see them coming.

Between First Fruits and Pentecost

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

For some time now, I’ve been puzzled about the time between the resurrection and the ascension, wondering why the Lord lingered during those 40 days.  It certainly wasn’t to complete His mission.  By all accounts He had already accomplished everything He came to do. It seems like He would have been more anxious to return to His heavenly home.

Jude, Gateway To Revelation … Conclusion

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Intending to write a letter to the Church on the subject of salvation, Jude was prompted instead to write about the false teachers who were already infecting the Church with their lies. He was just getting nicely wound up as we finished our first installment. Let’s rejoin him now as he releases the full force of his torrent against them. And as we saw last time, he wasn’t just writing about his times, he was also writing about ours.

Jude, Gateway To Revelation … Part 1

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Book of Acts is sometimes called the Acts of the Apostles because it’s a record of their experiences in building the early Church. That being the case, the Book of Jude could be called Acts of the Apostates because it’s devoted to warning the Church of the false teachers who were coming to tear it apart.

What Is The Apostles’ Creed?

Q.  My intellect is simple ( I think that is a blessing) and I like a simple explanation, and when I come across a statement of belief that go over my head from a denomination that I will not mention, I wonder how much trust should I put toward this denomination. Could you please help me understand? This is their Statement of Faith: “We believe in what is termed The Apostles’ Creed as embodying all the fundamental doctrines of orthodox evangelical Christianity.”  What is the Apostles’ Creed?

Does Satan Have A Place In Heaven?

Q.  In “Satan’s fall from heaven” you write: “But that will end at the beginning of the Great Tribulation when he (Satan) and his forces will be forcibly and permanently expelled (from heaven).” My question: Until that happens, where might Satan and his forces dwell, apart from sowing havoc on earth?  Where might their habitation be, when not on earth? Are the whole evil bunch allowed somewhere in heaven?

Watchman Or Peacemaker?

Q.  How can we be a watchman on the wall with the daily assault on Israel, shooting innocents out of the sky, flooding the borders with armed assassins, and the overall evil corruption in our own government, and still maintain our peace?  I am ticked off all the time.  This is truly a conundrum. No wonder so many Christians are apathetic and paralyzed into stupor. They are overloaded and it’s just going to get worse.

Judging Believers? How Can This Be?

Q. I have been taught that when we confess our sins and ask forgiveness of God, that through His sacrifice on Calvary’s Cross,  our sins are washed away, and you accept Him as your own personal Savior you are His forever.  We have been doing a Bible study on Revelation we’ve learned that when Christ comes back he will open the book of life and judge us. If, as it says in His Word, His blood cleansed me why will I be judged?  This question bothers me and I would appreciate your input.

OSAS And The Church At Ephesus

Q. I scanned thru your library of articles in regards to the fate of the church at Ephesus in Rev 2. Historically it is known that the city and church by whatever means were destroyed. This seems to demonstrate Christ’s promise of having its lamp stand removed. A friend of mine suggested that removal of the lamp stand symbolizes loss of salvation and supports the Arminian view of conditional security (which I don’t subscribe to).

Physically we see that Ephesus is no longer. However what became of the spiritual fate of the Ephesus church? Does this mean the Ephesians lost the Holy Spirit (or have fallen away or have fallen from grace) and were all condemned to Hell because they didn’t repent? Or is this in reference to inheritance and rewards that they blew (or never had)? Or is it something else?

Faith In The Rapture?

Q. Thank you for your insight and study and the willingness to share your time with us. I have a concern/question: I have read your studies on the Rapture and how to be ready when He comes. I believe what you present, but struggle with the teaching of others that say you have to have faith to be taken in the Rapture, just as you have to have faith to be saved, healed, etc. How do I reconcile the two points of view?

Going To Hell For Lying?

Q.  My co-workers and I were discussing how some employers are starting to ask their employees if they support the homosexual lifestyle. Two of my colleagues said if it happens where we work, they’ll lie and say yes, they support it because they don’t want to lose their jobs. The thing is, they are both born-again Christians. My question is, will pretending they support homosexual marriage mean they’ll end up in hell?

Should We Get Rid Of Our Crosses?

Q.  We have a few crosses as “ornaments” in our home, but lately I’m beginning to feel vaguely uneasy about it.  Are crosses actually idols with pagan origins, even when only seen as symbols and signs of faith?  What is your viewpoint regarding the display of crosses and candles as symbols of faith in churches and in homes as well as wearing crosses as jewelry?
