Q. In your Bible Study “Last Call”, you said “People are being visited in dreams, healed in prayer services, and even raised from the dead as evidence of the power of God in areas where Christianity hasn’t become as “mature” as it has elsewhere.” Where, exactly, have people been raised from the dead today? It seems that if that were true it would be front page news all around the world.
Q. How I can show my friend that where it says “for all have sinned” it really does mean “all”? This is one verse he tries to switch to make it say “not all will sin.” to prove he doesn’t sin and therefore doesn’t need a Savior. I’ve prayed constantly for him on this matter, and I pray the Lord will guide him to truth.
Q. I have heard it stated by people, especially those who are saved, that if a born again Christian takes their own life, they will still go to hell. One of my friends had a best friend who truly was saved, but hung himself. My friend, who is also a true believer, thinks his friend went to hell, even though this person was a born again Christian. The Bible is pretty quiet on this one, so I was wondering what the answer is. Does that person go to hell or do they get into heaven by the skin of their teeth?
Q. RE: Matt. 24:22 “Except those days be shortened”. Is it possible that the length of the days may be shortened, for instance 16 hours instead of 24 hours? Thank you for the time and effort you spend on this wonderful site.
Q. I’ve been intrigued by the recent posts regarding the “Times of the Gentiles” and whether or not that time continues through Daniel’s 70th week. I am confused regarding the terminology of the Church Age and the Times of the Gentiles. It seems like you are saying that they are different, overlapping time periods – the Church Age started with Jesus’ resurrection and ends with the rapture, but the Times of the Gentiles started with the destruction of the temple and continues through the 70th week, right? I guess I’m confused because I thought the 70th week was when God completed his plan for the Jewish people, not the Gentiles?
Q. I so appreciate your ministry! Thank you so much for your patience. I was talking to someone about the whole issue of how Prime Minister Netanyahu is allowing people to build homes on ‘Disputed land’, and how that is supposedly stalling the ‘peace’ process. What exactly is meant by ‘Disputed Land’ and is this a valid argument?
Q. It has always puzzled me that Christians use 2 Tim 3:16 to say that the Bible as we know it is all holy and inspired. When Paul wrote this he was talking about the 1st 5 books of the bible. The bible as we know it had not been written yet, or put together. He did not say that this letter I am writing is holy and inspired. So If you use 2 Tim 3:16 to support the whole bible being holy and inspired, you are implying something that is not there. Is there some other verse that supports the whole bible being holy and inspired, not just the first of the old testament?
Q. Eph. 2:6 says we were, “…seated with Him in heavenly places.” I don’t understand this “reality,” since we are clearly still in this world, where Jesus said we would have tribulation. I can accept this truth by faith, but it is a mystery to me–why did He say this? Is there something we should try to appropriate because of this reality?
Q. Regarding your reference to a possible Third Testament in the Q&A titled Sin in the Millenium: This is a fascinating concept; since the world will be completely different from what Tribulation survivors were familiar with, it makes sense that a new life guide should be available for those survivors who wish to follow God’s commandments in a new age. Do you think that Jesus himself will be the Author of this Third Testament? I hope that you will further expound on this hypothesis.
Q. I read and hear everywhere from all different sites that we all need to be ready when the Lord comes to Rapture us. I don’t understand this. What is it we need to do to be ready? My understanding is that we need to be saved to be ready, and that’s it! Am I missing something here?
