Q. If Adam and Eve and Satan were created perfect but still rebelled and disobeyed God what is to say Christians in heaven won’t eventually rebel or think an evil thought and get kicked out? Thanks for all you do I really enjoy your site!
Q. I am really struggling with the idea you have taught that New Jerusalem will not be on the earth. Here’s an alternative. If New Jerusalem is in a “Spiritual state” and not a solid building type of thing, I believe it could exist right here on earth and not be seen by earth dwellers (and they would not be allowed in it at any rate). I agree with your idea that the thing would be too large to be on Earth if it was a solid block 1400 miles square and tall. I really believe that we as “Spirit People” will be in “Another Dimension” not presently enjoyed by humans except those like The Apostle John who saw all of the tribulation events and the New Jerusalem “In the Spirit”. Have I gone off the deep end?
Q. In our discussion group a question about Galatians 3:26-27 came up . The question was “to what baptism is this making reference ? Some say it is referring to water baptism, some thought it could be a spiritual baptism equivalent to “baptism of the Holy Spirit”. Thanks for your thoughts on this.
Q. In Matthew 21 :43 it seems that the kingdom will be taken from those outlined in v45. Do you think this refers to all Israel? Further, who are the people to whom it will be given, and when will this happen?
Q. Thank you so much for your wonderful site. I am pre-trib and the souls under the altar in Revelation 6:10, 11 confuse me. I understand the great multitude in Revelation 7:9 are saved out of the tribulation than who are the souls in Revelation 6:10, 11?
Q. From the Parable of the Sower, is being fruitful referring to the nine Spiritual fruits born in our character? Do ‘deeds’ or ‘good works’ then have to follow ‘fruits’? At the believers’ judgment for rewards, will our Lord judge us on works or fruits or are they both the same thing? Thanks for your help.
Q. You may have answered this before, but would you explain the parable of the Sower, in relation to OSAS?
Q. Do you think Zechariah 12 is talking about Armageddon, or perhaps the Gog/Magog invasion?
Q. I have been reading the book of Leviticus and my question is this. As a church saved by grace I find that we still refer back to the law, in this instance, the book of Leviticus for a very detailed and exacting guidance of righteous living before God. I know these guidelines were written for Israel but some of them were and are still relevant to our life today. Many churches will point a finger at specific scriptures that they believe support their doctrine (for example tattooing) I would appreciate some clarity on this subject.
Q. In John 8:10-11 Jesus is quoted: “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
Was Jesus really saying, “If you continue in your sin of adultery, I may not be here to save you again from stoning?” In reality we can not stop sinning all together until we are perfected in heaven.
For another question: John 10:30 Jesus said, “I and the Father are one.” Does this mean that when Jess was raised from the dead on the third day after his death, he in fact raised himself from the dead? I believe the Bible says that God the Father raised him but he is God also.
