Is My Minister Friend Saved?

Q. Hello Jack, thanks again for your great work, may God bless you.

I have an old Friend who is a Minister for a Community Church, we were talking the other night and he really has different views on the Church and Israel, the rapture and so on…He claims to be born again. He believes that we are currently living in the Millennial Age, That the Church represents Israel, The Temple has already been rebuilt and destroyed, and on and on. I am a little worried for him.  I love him, but I don’t want to argue with him. I am firm in my beliefs, which agree almost 100% with yours. How should I handle this, and is he actually saved?

Re-Discovering God

Q. For about a year I have felt more distanced from God than I have in the past. I still pray, but I just feel a disconnect from God. I try and obey and honor Him, but it’s like I’m just drifting. How do I know if I’m doing his will? How do I know what path for my life he wants me to take? Thank you. Continue reading…

Round Up Time?

Q. I have come across a growing concern by many, that martial law is on the horizon. Apparently, FEMA has drawn up an extensive list of resistors and dissidents.  It is said the resistors are gun owners, and the dissidents are Christians. If that is possible, then what’s to become of us? I thought we weren’t appointed unto God’s wrath. Your thoughts, please? Continue reading…

Looking For Jesus

Q. My question is in regard to Matthew 24:28:  “For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles [vultures] will be gathered together.”  Is the carcass Jerusalem during the Great Tribulation and the vultures all the nations that come against her?

Thrones

Q.  I am in 2 Bible Studies at Church – one in Matthew and the another in Revelations. We ran across this verse in Matthew 19:28, and I do not know what the 12 thrones refer to. In Rev.4, I found 24 Thrones for the 24 Elders. Are the 12 Thrones in Matthew part of the 24 in Revelations 4 – or are they different ? We also discussed by 12, if there was only 11 Disciples left, after Judas. I appreciate your Biblical expertise on this question.

Promises To Israel

Q.  My question involves Jeremiah 31:35-36  In this passage God is speaking to Israel saying that He has given the sun, moon, and the sea as an ordinance…(etc) and that if these ordinances should depart from Him, Israel shall also depart from being a nation before Him.  Here He is apparently affirming that Israel will remain His chosen nation.  And yet that seems to conflict with the fact that during the millennial reign, the sun, moon, and sea will no longer exist, or be visibly functioning.  Can you explain this?

Did He Remember The Dream Or Not?

Q. In the King James Version of Daniel 2:1-11, it says that Nebuchadnezzar had forgotten the dream that so troubled him. However, in the New International Version, it suggests that he did not forget the dream but instead did not trust his wise men to render an accurate interpretation. Therefore, in order to be sure they got it right, he required that they tell him the dream and the interpretation. This raises a red flag of discrepancy between the two versions. Can you help clarify the difference?

Post 2nd Coming Rapture?

Q. How can the “rapture” be “imminent”? Acts 3:21 says that Jesus “must” stay in heaven (He is now there with the Father) “until the times of restitution of all things” which includes, says Scofield, “the restoration of the theocracy under David’s Son” which obviously can’t begin before or during Antichrist’s reign. Since Jesus must personally participate in the rapture, and since He can’t even leave heaven before the tribulation ends, the rapture therefore cannot take place before the end of the tribulation.
