Q. Thank you for a superb site proclaiming the truth of God’s Holy Word . When I got saved some 23 years ago I just assumed Christians took Scripture plainly at face value . I now know this is not necessarily so . My concern is : There are saved Ministers out there preaching Salvation thru Christ faithfully with many converts , whilst holding an amillennial view claiming God’s Word is “contained” in Scripture rather than Scripture is God’s Word.
Q. Mark 13:20 “And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.” Doesn’t this tell us that at least some of the Elect survive the Tribulation, and go into the Millennial Kingdom?
Q. I find it sometimes almost unbelievable on how you put it all together and make the Bible so much clearer and easier to understand. With there being a “simplicity in Jesus Christ”, why do you think it is so hard for so many to understand and/or do the “Berean research” in understanding the Bible? I understand human nature and always trying to “read between the lines” and such, but is there any Scripture that explains why Jesus believing people have a hard time understanding the Bible?
Q. Re: “Can We Lose Our Salvation Through Disobedience” In your response about the fear of losing one’s salvation, I have a question. My understanding is if we fear that we can loose our salvation then we are trusting in ourselves and not in God’s provision. Therefore we are not truly saved because we are in essence trusting only in ourselves and not in God for our salvation. The fear of doing something that would loose our salvation is depending on our own works to save us and not trusting in God to save us. So I consider people who believe they can loose their salvation are not really saved at all. Please help me with this if it is incorrect.
Q. I am confused about the 144,000 and the two witnesses. Which one came first, the two witnesses, did they witness to the 144,000? Or did the 144,000 witness the to the two witnesses? Will these two witnesses preach during the last half of the Tribulation? Will the 144,000 have any ministry during the last half of the Tribulation?
Q. Can you please provide some clarification regarding what remnant of the surviving Tribulation population will go on to repopulate the planet after the Second Coming? Will it be those who come to faith during the Tribulation and survive, will it be those who are unbelieving until Christ’s return, or will it be a combination of both? We are a little confused as to whether the surviving Tribulation believers will be residing in the New Jerusalem with the returning saints, or living on the out skirts repopulating the planet and if so, how will they be differentiated from those who did not believe until they actually see Yeshua’s appearance?
Q. My friend was asking my thoughts on a topic that came up during a men’s bible study of Jeremiah. Evidently there are some who believe that Israel will once again be removed from there land. I find that difficult to believe. As I was not at that particular study, I don’t know what verse or verses were used to justify that position (but it did come from Jeremiah). Have you ever hear of this?
Q. There are people today in the Church Age who truly believe they are saved by grace and not of works, but “fear” and think they can lose their salvation by disobedience. I know all other believers from the Old Testament, Tribulation, and Millennial times will have to do works/obey in order to show they are believers. The Church Age is the exception, but can Church Age believers cancel out their salvation by being afraid they can lose it?
Q. Does Ezekiel 33:1-9 mean we are to speak up when we see wicked things and warn or hold accountable the person involved in such things, or we will answer for their death? So if we remain silent, this is a sin?
Q. Perhaps you can advise me. I have carried a minister’s license for a lot of years, but have never used it to preach, although I am accused of being preachy. A lot of those years I have felt that I have been called to help spread the word. I currently reside in the Philippines and feel there is a need to fill and that I could fill it with the Holy Spirit guiding. The problem is I am a sinner. Not a terrible sinner. I was a lot worse but God has cleaned me up pretty well. Even so, I can’t seem to overcome the feeling of unworthiness because of the sins I still commit. I know where to find forgiveness for my weakness but still lack to courage to preach. Is this Satan working in me to stop me from sharing my blessings or am I just putting too much me in the equation? Your opinion would be appreciated.
