When Were The Angels Created? Follow Up

Q.  Re:When were the Angels created?  The answer you gave seems to be very incorrect Scripturally.  We have recently had this discussion in our Institute and through studying Scripture have found a very clear answer. I wonder if you might look at it and see if we are out in left field.

We read in 2 places:
Col 1.16 “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:…”

Exodus 20:11
“For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day:…”

How Does It All End?

Q.  Can you explain 1 Cor. 15:24-28, especially verse 28?  Does this mean that in the end, Christ will be ‘absorbed’, so to speak, by God and no longer be a separate entity or that Christ will no longer be relevant, for lack of a better word, and just be like us or just that Christ will no longer have to reign and  can just ‘rest’?

When Were the Angels Created?

Q.  Is there any specific scriptural reference to when angels were created?  Can you provide any Biblical interpretation of the era when God created angelic beings in comparison to the creation of man, and when do you think the angelic rebellion took place?

Finding My Relatives

Q.  Re: The Genesis Narrative.  In that ebook you have Noah saying: “Just for kicks, see if you can figure out which of my sons you’re descended from. If you’re a human being on planet Earth, you only have three choices. Then see which of Earth’s 70 families you belong to.”  How do I do that?

Has The Stage Been Set?

Q. I’ve read where some other prophecy teachers say the world is now at the point where Ezekiel 38-39 wars and/or Psalm 83 wars could happen, everything in perfect alignment, but before the next steps, the Rapture.  In a nutshell, do you believe the world stage is now set for these wars, or do you believe there are still other conditions that need to be met?

Spiritual Israel?

Q.  My sister is a Jehovah’s Witness to whom I have witnessed to for over thirty years to no avail.   I’m aware that Jehovah’s Witnesses believe they have replaced Israel as God’s people/witnesses.  My sister recently used the term ‘spiritual Israel’ in regard to herself and other Jehovah’s Witnesses and my response was that I did not believe in a spiritual Israel.  I do not subscribe to Replacement Theology in any form, believing that God will keep every promise He has made including those made to the nation of Israel and the Jews as a people.  My questions are 1) who specifically are Abraham’s children by circumcision of the heart, and what and who could be spiritual Israel if there is such a  people?

Taking The Chip

Q. Now that national health care has been forced upon us in the US, I see the verichip following close behind, as an excuse to keep all of our medical information supposedly accessible through it. I see this as the mark of the beast, and will refuse it even if it costs me my life. What are your views on the “chip”?

Can A Person Walk Away From God?

Q. I am going through the book of Mark on your web site. You say in chapter 3 that anyone who is a believer can never blaspheme the Holy Spirit. I understand that but, What if  that person decides in his heart that he no longer is a believer and turns away and becomes a agnostic or atheist. Is he ever able to turn back to Christ? Continue reading…

Must I Re-Marry?

Q.  I lost my wife 4 months ago and I very much want to go and be with her in heaven. In fact I’ve been praying for that to happen.  Until it does, I’ve decided to remain alone.  But I’ve been told that’s wrong, and that I should look for another woman to marry.  Where does God’s word say I need to remarry? If I wish to remain unmarried until I leave this world, what’s wrong with that?
