Greedy Or Generous?

Q.  I find myself often just flush with greed. I have much; I have more than enough financially and I have advanced to a healthy old age. Yet I seem to have the idea that, “if I had more I could contribute more to God’s work in the world”. Yet by most giving standards I do give far more than a tithe. I mean much more. Got any suggestions as to what is wrong with me? Is it just a worldly attitude? God forbid that an old person would be guilty of that!

Zombies In Matt. 27?

Q.  A young man I sometimes see at work asked me “Is it true there are zombies in the Bible”? He was referring to Matthew 27:51-53.  I read it to him and did my best to explain.  How would you have done it?

Peaceful And Unsuspecting?

Q.  I was reading Ezekiel 38 because I believe that this battle has been projected to start the 70th weeks of Daniel. I am particularly interested in Russia’s role in Ezekiel 38 since Putin is getting desperate. But, what confuses me is in two places it says that Israel will be in peace when the armies of Ezekiel 38 swoop down on it. How can that ever happen until the Anti-Christ signs a treaty that supposedly will restrain ISIS and radical groups now attacking Israel? Is the peace referred to in Ezekiel 38 really peace as we think of it?

Doubting My Salvation

Q.  I am a born again believer. I know in my heart whom I belong to. My problem is my husband and I drink. I feel God want me to quit. I hate my sin. I have begged God to take this away. I have even heard that a lot of people who accept Jesus as their savior, that their bad habits just go away. Why won’t God take this away from me?  I also battle whether I am a truly saved since I repeatedly continue to drink. If I am completely still, I know who I belong to, but I just don’t understand this battle.

OSAS And Galatians 5:16-21

Q.  There is a TV preacher who teaches that believers who practice the acts of the sinful nature will not inherit the Kingdom based on Galatians 5:16-21.  Does that mean any believer who does those things will have his or her salvation revoked? Doesn’t that conflict with OSAS?

Is Matt. 24:9-14 For The Church?

Q.  Unfortunately for me, I believe that Mathew 24:9-14 is all pre-trib, pre-rapture and coming very soon.  There sure wont be ‘many’ false prophets running around during the tribulation, maybe one.   God sure didn’t spare Israel from wrath.  Crazy thing is my pre-trib philosophy excluded a possibility that God is angry at the U.S.  And when He gets angry people die, and being God, He may not wait until the Tribulation to settle up.  This warm fuzzy pre-trib business may end soon.  Few are prepared.  Fewer are speaking about it.

Is The Parable Of The Talents About Us?

Q.  I understand that we are saved by Grace through faith, but the servant who received the one talent was sent to a place of ‘weeping and gnashing of teeth’ because he as I understand it, did nothing with the gifts and talents god has given him.  I am a born again spirit filled believer, but if at the end of my life I haven’t actually put the gifts God has given me to good use for his kingdom, is this saying that God wont accept me in heaven?  I am confused because it also says there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  As you can see I am very confused as to what this scripture is actually talking about, Please help!!

OSAS And Falling Away

Q. I agree with you on the OSAS but my question is on the scripture that states that many will fall away from the faith. What does that exactly mean? Continue reading…

Three Raptures?

Q.  Because there are 3 major views of when the Church will be raptured and very knowledgeable scholars on all sides ( pre, mid, and post tribulation) and because Jesus alludes to all three (Church of Philadelphia pre, Church of Thyatira mid, Laodicea post) is it feasible that all three are correct?
