Q. My friends and myself are thinking about preparing a Passover Seder meal. Do you have any info about what we should make? Any recipes’? If not, how do we go about getting them? In your opinion, would this glorify the Lord? Would this insult Him? Also, in one of the articles that I read about this meal, it said that we were supposed to drink about 4 glasses of wine. I would fall over drinking that much wine. I haven’t had a drink in 12 years.
Q. The Bible offers nations and individuals an opportunity to return to God, if they will. Has any gentile nation in history ever returned to God after walking with Him and then rejecting Him as a matter of national policy?
Q. More and more when I share my faith I get people saying things like, “I can see that it works for you.” or “Your way works for you and my way works for me.” They don’t believe there is only one way to God and think truth is subjective. I’ve even had people say to me, “Well, good for you.” when sharing what I believe. The only time they get their bristles up is if I talk about absolute truth and challenge their belief that there is more than one way to God. I don’t do that anymore since it doesn’t help. I’m at a loss. How do I witness to such people?
Q. There’s something I don’t understand. If these are the last Blood Moons (2 in 2014 and 2 in 2015) and there will be no more this century as NASA says, are these the Blood Moons of Joel and Acts? If they are not, then the blood moons will be caused by something happening? My mind is really pondering this and could we be so close to the Tribulation!
Q. I understand that it is God’s Will that I be sanctified. And I understand from Romans 12:1-2 that I am transformed by renewing my mind. How do I renew my mind so all the Spiritual Gifts in my spirit can be released ? I understand that until I do this, my mind remains with the leftover old programming from my old nature ! My biggest area of defeat is my emotions and anger in particular. Thank you so much for this web site and all your sound spiritual advice.
Q. My sister was listening to a Pastor who said that at one time God was so disgusted with people, He wished He had never made mankind. I remember that but the Pastor went on to say that it was because of the culture and the low intellect of the people. This doesn’t make sense to me. What do you think?
Q. I recently got into a conversation with a friend who believes that her children have both had previous lives. She claims to have even had a vision of how her son had died in his previous life. I told her that in all likelihood she was dealing with a familiar spirit. However she seemed less than sold on the whole theory. Can you offer any other theory on what it is that would cause a person to have these experiences? Thanks for your insight.
Q. I have a question about Matthew 24. I know that in verse 14, it says that the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world, and then the end shall come. I have heard that this chapter was written to Israel, as at that time there was no Church; indeed, the Church was a mystery hidden from the ages. (Rom 16:25, Col 1:26 -27.)
So, even though we want to reach as many as possible for Christ, so they can avoid the tribulation, it appears that the Church does not have to reach all the nations for the rapture to happen, but rather to get a certain number saved (when the full number of Gentiles come in. Therefore, isn’t the burden upon tribulation saints to start at square one in evangelizing the world, which WILL be completed in 7 years ? Not that the Church should curtail her efforts.
Q. You have said that Jesus doesn’t mention the Rapture in Matthew 24. But in Matt 24:36 He talks about no one knows the day or hour not even the Son. Then in verse 42 He says to keep watch because you do not know what day your Lord will come. Doesn’t that have to do with the Rapture since the Day of the Lord (the second coming) can be calculated by counting 1260 days from when the Abomination of Desolation takes place in the temple?
Q. In your study on Revelation 2 & 3, specifically the section on the letter to the church at Thyatira, you have pointed out that Catholics (yes, I am Catholic) believe that the communion bread and wine are the actual and spiritual body and blood of Jesus. Is this not supported by scripture such as John 6:51-59? What are your thoughts on this?
