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?
Q. I visited a nearby church the other day as I was thinking I would do some things locally (help at the food bank, etc) and wanted to do so with some other Christians. So I went to a Sunday morning service there. One of the things in the sermon that upset me was the Pastor saying that some talk about a personal savior and that is selfish. God is for everyone. I consider Jesus my personal savior as He is for many others and I do not consider that selfish. To me this Pastor is making it difficult for members of his congregation to believe in Jesus’ death for them.
Q. Do non- believers get a glorified body at their resurrection as well as believers? If they don’t get an eternal body, how do they survive the eternal torment of the Lake of Fire without being consumed and annihilated by the fire?
Q. I have a question re the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. I had a short discussion with someone about it. Could you please let me know if crucifixion was against Jewish law. I know that the Pharisees wanted Jesus gone, but I have believed not through crucifixion. Would you please clarify this for me?
Q. I’m sure you’ve heard about the red heifer that has been found somewhere in the US, that is apparently qualified to be used in the third temple that will be built soon. I know finding the perfect candidate is huge in Biblical prophecy, but how does it fit into the rapture, are we that close ?
Q. Is there something about the rapture that I and many others are missing? Perhaps you can bring some light to this. Many Christians, perhaps like me, believe that the pre trib rapture is sort of a Great Escape for people who don’t deserve to escape( like me) the hour of trial coming upon the world. It seems too easy. But perhaps we don’t see the rapture for what it really is. Is it true that the Davidic Kingdom cannot be set up on earth as long as the Church is on earth and that to remove the Church from the earth is the real reason for the rapture?
Q. My question revolves around the wide and narrow gate and salvation. I am in agreement with you that one only has to believe in Jesus to be saved. But the way you respond to questions makes it seem like lots of people will be saved. Whereas, other Bible sites I read emphasize that lots of people are Christian in name only, and comparatively few will be saved\raptured. It does say that few will find the narrow gate in the Bible. So, how do you reconcile this? Do you think a large percentage of the population will go in the rapture?
Q. Thank you for all you do, I have learned so much from you. My question is this. How was it possible for Enoch and Elijah to go into the presence of God before their sin was paid for at the cross? I know there has to be an explanation, but I can’t figure this one out. Can you please help me to understand? Were they thrust forward in time somehow to the cross? That is the only thing my little mind can come up with. Thank You in advance for your help.
