Q. Thank you for your sound Biblical advice and teachings. My question is regarding preparing for the future primarily in the areas of economic collapse and persecution. What should we be doing? Stocking piling food, moving our investments in to gold and silver, buying land so we can farm, etc. Others say don’t be concerned because the church will be with the Lord. So what is the biblical balance? What would the Lord say to us at this time in history?
Q. I’ve been reading the book of Acts especially chapter 1 and 2 looking for something that suggests that Mary the mother of Jesus was also there on the day of Pentecost. Its seems as if I read something like that in the bible and now I’m really struggling to get it. Please help me if you can.
Q. I am a fairly new Christian. The tithe thing I am having a big problem with . There is no way I could give 10% of my net income yet alone gross income. Do you have any suggestions?
Q. I’m writing to you today because my family is being hit so very hard by trial after trial, in literally every facet of our lives. Wave after wave hits us, and there is no sign of this letting up any time soon. We’re frustrated, tired, and honestly- troubled. I have been clinging to the peace that only Jesus can give, but when I read John 14:27 today, it was the second half of the verse that gave me pause. “Let not” and “neither let” imply that we have a choice in this when our hearts are troubled. Can you tell me how to not allow my heart to be troubled?
Q. I was hoping you could give the differences between the battle of Gog and Magog and the battle of Armageddon. For example, in one the bodies are buried and the other they are consumed by the fowl of the air. Thank you again for your time and effort on the website.
Q. I have a question I hope you can sort out for me. Matthew 5: 11-12 states that we are blessed when we’re persecuted for Jesus’ sake. I have always thought that means, when people scoff if we are sharing the good news that Jesus died for our sins. But lately I have started to wonder: does it also apply when you refuse to do something you know God would hate, such as telling dirty jokes even though all your buddies are doing the same thing? When they laugh and call you a prude, is that the same as being reviled because of Jesus?
Q. Was Jesus 30 when he started his ministry and 33 & 1/2 when he died ?? Are there scriptures to prove this?
Q. I’ve been thinking of this phrase, ‘those that remain’, when Jesus comes for the church during the rapture, and it seems an odd choice of words; maybe it’s just the translation? To me, if you remain, that means something has to happen for a lot of people to die, therefore having a remainder of people left to take during rapture. I wonder if there will be a big natural event that wipes out many before He comes for us? Is this also way there are believers of mid tribulation rapture? What are your thoughts?
Q. I have always thought that there was more to the story about the shepherds visiting the birth of Jesus than what Luke says. For example, I’ve been told that these were shepherds of the flock of sheep that were used in the temple sacrifices and therefore they were making sure that the lambs being born were without blemish. This is the reason they were sent to Bethlehem to witness the birth of Jesus, the Lamb of God, who was born without sin. Also, the plot of land they were using was the same plot that Boaz redeemed for Naomi in the book of Ruth. Is there any evidence of this or is it all a cute story like the little drummer boy?
Q. In Mark 9: 14-27 a man brought a boy with a dumb spirit to JESUS. In vs. 19 he asked the father how long ago did this happen? Why did JESUS ask him that? Wouldn’t JESUS have known that? Then in vs: 22 the father said if you can do anything help us, and in vs 23 JESUS said if you can believe all things are possible to him that believes. In vs: 24 the father said i believe.. help my unbelief. What does all that mean? Did he believe or not?
