Q. Re: A Secret Jesus Couldn’t Reveal. I sincerely apologize for being so dense, but I want to be clear on this. My husband is a born again Jew, but I’m wondering if God blinded the Jews, how did he squeak through? And then you wrote that God has different requirements for Israel than the Jews who become part of the Church. I thought Israel was the Jews and all the other tribes? What is the specific difference between Israel and the Jews?
Q. I heard a sermon on this passage which I completely disagreed with. If I understood correctly, it seemed the pastor said that believers who do not bear fruit, or refuse to allow the Holy Spirit to work through them to bear fruits of love would be taken away and “purged or cleansed” in the fire to help them grow…something to that effect. As I understand it, believers can suffer loss but I’ve never read or been taught they will have to go through some type of purgatory. This teaching sounds like more “overcomers” theory.
Q. I am a brother in Christ, but I have trouble understanding how Luke 21:25,26 and 1 Thessalonians 5:3 can both be right. How can they be saying peace and security and at the same time being fearful about the thing coming to the earth?
Q. Do you think all children in the world under the age of accountability will be raptured? Even those in unbelieving households?
Q. Re: A Secret Jesus Couldn’t Reveal. We do not understand your statement, “Blessings like salvation by grace through faith alone, eternal security, and especially the rapture, never have and never will be offered to Israel.” We understand that only the Church will be raptured, but how does the Jew receive salvation if not thru faith alone?
Q. How do you know if you’re “being called” ? I understand that we are all called to be a light in the world and let the Holy Spirit shine through us as we go about our daily lives. However, there are those (like you for instance) who somehow come to a place in their lives where it’s obvious that the Lord wants them to minister to others in a more “official” capacity.
I have been struggling with this more and more lately, which makes me think, “Is the fact that I’m struggling, a sign that I’m being called”? I have not received a clear and undeniable “word from the Lord” that I am aware of… it’s more of a thought that just seems to hang around but never really leaves.
Q. I (we) do appreciate your knowledge of scripture and Godly sense. I know that this should not really concern those of us who are waiting for His call to ‘come up hither’. My question is; when the anti Christ sits in the temple at the mid-point claiming to be God might he will also sacrifice humans? Maybe this would be one more reason that the Jews will head out to Petra? Is there scripture that might suggest this, or is this just an over active imagination?
Q. Thanks for an awesome site. Question: In the last paragraph of your article on “Psalm 83” you state that any unconfessed sin will hamper our fellowship with God. How do I know what this unconfessed sin might be? When in prayer, I confess all my sins that I’m aware of and ask God to forgive me for all these sins and also all other sins that I’m not aware of. Am I still out of fellowship with Him because I did not confess those sins that I’m unaware of by name? Continue reading…
Q. Peter quoted Joel 2:28-32 in Act 2. Sounds to me like what is mentioned in Joel 2:28-32 is something continue going on since Pentecost. How do you see it?
Q. My husband and I have been reading your articles on healing. Our question has to do with whether it is always God’s will to heal? God’s promise in Isaiah seems to speak of our iniquities and not our infirmities. (King James version) We prayed for a friend’s healing according to the promise of His Word, but feel our faith would be unwavering if we could base it on the literal translation of a word meaning infirmities.
