Q. I am an Ordained Minister of the Gospel and I must admit, I have used much of your teaching in my messages! One of the questions I’m commonly asked is about OSAS. This first occurred when a member of my church asked me if that meant she could “Commit murder and still be saved and go to heaven.” I have also been told by critics of OSAS that this is a license to sin. I have been reading your books and commentaries on this interesting subject and must admit that you have changed my mind and I thank you. However, what is to keep some one who is saved from turning his/her back on Jesus and “going astray”?
Q. In 2 Cor 12:2, Paul reports being caught up to the third heaven. Where are the other two and what scripture references are there?
Q. I was wondering if it’s possible for us to have what I call “Hagar” moments in our own lives. I mean moments where God seems to have promised something, but then something else comes along which would seem like a better choice, but would only lead to disaster?
Q. How can we enter into heaven without spot or wrinkle if we can’t stop sinning because of our sin nature?
Q. Your response to “Born Again Twice” mentions prayer language, i.e. speaking in tongues. I don’t get this whole tongues thing. I’ve never had a prayer language; and frankly after asking for it many times in an attempt to do all God would have me do, without receiving, I don’t believe it’s for every Christian otherwise God would have given me one. Do you believe every Christian must speak in tongues or have a prayer language?
Q. How does one reconcile the arguments of creationism vs. evolution? I hold fast to the belief that God created man, but, with overwhelming proof of the concept of evolving is there any proof outside faith that at some point God made man as he is today and in doing so broke from the predecessor “cave man” etc. Is there a blending of the two concepts that is acceptable to the Christian faith?
Q. I have a question about the statue in Daniel chapter 2. Could it be possible for the US to be the toes? We have European roots and our government has similarities to Rome. Our people are a mixture and the way things are heading, looks like soon we will no longer be united, as a people. It also states, “in the time of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people.”
Q. Can a Christian who has fallen away for 8 years and come back to Christ, still be filled with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit? All of this after repentance and being Water baptized again. Is it necessary to ask for the Baptism of Holy Spirit a second time? I still have my prayer language, etc.
Q. In Luke 21: 24 it mentions ‘the times of the Gentiles’. In Romans 11:25, it mentions ‘the fullness of the Gentiles’. But, according to Revelation 7:9 and 7:14, there will be Gentiles saved during the great tribulation. I have difficulty to explain Romans 11:25 together with Revelation 7:9,14. Is the ‘times of the Gentiles’ and the ‘fullness of the Gentiles’ pointing to the same time?
Q. What is prophecy? How do people prophesy, and are there still prophets today? I ask this because I think I have the gift of prophecy but I’m not sure. I’ve asked God about it, and I think He’s told me yes. It’s just that sometimes, I know things that are going to happen and that they are true. I have no idea how to explain it except for that. Please help!
