Q. My question is on faith. I know someone who is terminally ill and dying. She has great faith in the Lord. In a recent conversation she said, “Can you imagine meeting Jesus? How wonderful it will be”. There was such excitement in her spirit. I have great respect and admiration for her faith and the relationship she has with Him. She has said that her faith is a simple one. She trusts her life to God. In many of our conversations over the years she has shared her faith and the faithfulness of the Lord in her life. How do you reach that kind of faith?
Q. My husband was watching an end-times TV show where the commentator said the anti-Christ will be killed and then resurrect himself during the Tribulation. The idea will be he can show himself to have great power and win the masses to his side. I have never heard of the anti-Christ dying during the Tribulation, have you? Is this Biblical?
Q. I was studying the judgments of the end times for the purpose of warning some friends I care about what awaits them if they continue to put off salvation. I’d like your opinion on something. While the fact is no one knows for sure it seems to me that the 7 thunders are an unrevealed series of judgments, probably worse than the trumpet judgments, but not as severe as the bowl judgments. I say this because of the number of thunders and the location of the thunders in the book. What’s your opinion?
Q. All Satan really has to do to “win” against God is to make something God said was going to happen, NOT happen. God proves He is God by giving us prophecy, history written in advance. All Satan would have to do to prove the God of the Bible false is to mess up a prophecy, right? For instance, Satan could choose NOT to have the Anti-Christ stand in the Holy of Holies and declare himself to be God in the middle of the Daniel’s 70th week. This is making a prophecy fail. It seems simple to me, why doesn’t Satan just change his plan?
Q. I often see people say that Jesus (and the Bible) promote Socialism. While I know most Christians are against Socialism, I can see passages where it does sound like the early Church was practicing what we now call Socialism. Just one passage for example: 2 Corinthians 8: 13-16 and there are others. Any light you can shed on this would be appreciated.
Q. Did I understand you to say the Lord must call all who are born again but have strayed away back to faith before the rapture? If so then we are in for a very long wait. And I’m afraid that means the rapture won’t be anytime soon. And neither will the 1948 generation live to see the second coming, as they will be long dead by the time all who have strayed are called back to faith. In fact I think I’ve read the opposite on your site, that born again believers are turning to the world and false prophets at an alarming rate during the last days. Did I misunderstand you?
Q. With Phillip preaching the word and crowds hearing and seeing miracles that he did, why do you think that Phillip did not pray for them to receive the Holy Spirit. And that the original disciples Peter and John were sent? Were the original disciples, now apostles, the only ones to pray for this. And at what point was there a transition from them to others. And are there qualifications for this, like pastors, elders, evangelists, prophets?
Q. I was reading your bible study titled “The Origin of Evil” where you state: “Satan’s original role was to head up the squadron of Cherubim who guard the Throne of God.” That sentence struck me odd and I can’t quite wrap my mind around it. In heaven and at the Throne of God, the holiest and most powerful place in existence where evil and nothing like it had ever existed before (I assume), who or what was the squadron of Cherubim guarding the throne from? Was there truly a threat of danger?
Q. Why does the bible say that Jesus came to save the world and not condemn it but also Jesus says He didn’t come to bring peace but a sword turning son against father, etc?
Q. I was reading a post “Who Goes Where And When” and you gave the reference (Daniel 12:1-2, Rev. 20:4) to show that the Old Testament saints would be resurrected at the 2nd coming. It has been my understanding that all people before Christ will sleep through the thousand years and I did not see anything indicating differently. What am I missing?
