Q. Did all denominations come from the Catholic faith? I have been asked this question and I did not have an answer.
Q. Is it possible that the trumpet judgements and the bowl judgments be defining the same events from a different perspective? It would seem that we are seeing God’s view and the unbelievers view of the same action for reinforcement.
Q. I have a question regarding this “sinner-righteous” position. In Romans, Paul makes it clear that we were sinners before Christ came into our lives. In 2 Corinthians 5:17 (“old things have passed away; behold all things are become new”, and then verse 21 (“…that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him”), it seems to me that we have been changed from actually being “sinners” to “sons of God” (many verses that I know you know!). So, is this just a semantics thing, or what? I know that I sin, but in Romans 7, Paul says that it is “sin in me” not “me” that is sinning. This difference makes all the difference, as I see it, in how we perceive ourselves; and this perception is affirming of Christ’s finished work on Calvary.
Q. Re: Rev. 11:19. This verse has puzzled me for some time, and with having heard/read that “the ark of His testament” resides under the Dome of The Rock in Jerusalem presently, I was wondering what are your thoughts on this verse?
Q. Do you have a teaching on Matthew 16:28? What was Jesus talking about?
Q. I very much appreciated your round up of the Middle East situation but I am not sure you answered your own question. So, is ISIS, ISIL, IS, or whatever they call themselves, the apocalyptic end times scenario or will God wipe them out? I believe He will. Others have intimated the same thing you did, that they are the AC predecessors but I think they are a flash in the pan. Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying but clearly, won’t God just wipe this vermin out like Hamas and the rest of the foes of Israel?
Q. I recently read a book by an author who used to be a Satanist, where he said a Christian once came to him for help. Apparently, the Christian guy had been praying for relief from a situation, but nothing happened. So he decided to ask the devil for help instead. It got me wondering, what does God think of that? This man was praying for help and God didn’t help him, so I guess he caved because he couldn’t take the pressure anymore. Can you give me some answers on this topic?
Q. Regarding your Q&A titled “Can Islam Really Become the One World Religion”, you stated in your answer that you believe that a great leader from the Islamic faith will emerge to restore peace and order. How can this future leader emerge from Islam since he’ll have no regard for any god including the god of Islam as it states in Daniel 11:37?
Q. In your study of Rev. 6 you put forward the following; “After the true Church is gone, those who also call themselves the church, but have been left behind, won’t have much trouble at all accepting Islam.” Do you still hold to this belief?
In light of Ezekiel 38-39, which you have stated, and I believe, will occur before the tribulation, God destroys the federation of Muslim countries that come against Israel. God explains in Ezekiel that all will know He is God at the end of this conflict. 1) Why would anyone seeing this believe that Islam is the true religion since it’s armies were destroyed 2) With all of the atrocities that are being committed in the name of Allah at this time, could any sane person come to that conclusion?
Q. You once said that if God intends to make the rapture coincide with a Jewish feast day then the most likely by far would be Pentecost(Shavuot).”
I realize we are only speculating here, but I believe that the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) could also be a likely candidate. It is probably the most holy feast of the seven feasts. God told the Jews to spend evening to evening afflicting their souls (fasting, praying, confessing, sacrificing, etc.; Lev. 23:32).
