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.

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?

Do We All Have The Same DNA?

Q. If we are all descended from Adam and Eve, do we all have the same DNA? I always thought that as far as races go, the Jewish race is different from all other races. Was the DNA of the Jewish people changed, I wonder?

Was I Technically Not Baptized?

Q.  I was recently baptized along with my wife and we had the event videoed. I’m a quadriplegic and only have use of my shoulders and biceps, so we had 3 people carry me into the pool. Once I was in, my pastor had me under my armpits, but when he went to submerge me, the top of my head didn’t go all the way under the water. I’m sure he was a bit nervous and didn’t want me to accidentally choke, but shouldn’t I have been fully submerged? I know I’m saved, but was I technically not baptized?

What About Post Church Believers?

Q.  Jesus was the first of many brethren, and the brethren are we who will be raptured, from what I understand.  We are/will be members of the royal family and will be kings and priests.  But what about those who believe after we are raptured?  If I understand it correctly, they will not be kings (although they might be like governors) and they will serve in God’s temple.  Are they also the brothers and sisters of King Jesus, even though they are not royalty?

Satan In The Wilderness

Q. Can you tell me why Satan was not fearful to approach Jesus so boldly and tempt Him in the wilderness? Does Satan still have access to God?
