Do We Reap What We Sow?

Q. My question is about sowing of seed and reaping. Do you believe it is Biblical to expect if I sow the seed of money I can expect a reaping of money? Or if I sow the seed of smiles will I reap smiles? The Bible does say you reap what you sow.

The Adulterous Wife And The Virgin Bride

Q.  I know a Bible teacher there who holds a meeting once a week and I am very concerned about this doctrine he teaches.   He says that God has a wife, and that wife is Israel.  Next, he says that Christ has a separate Bride. I have never heard this before.  Can you provide either confirmation or correction ?

Tribulation Believers. Follow up.

Q.  Re:  Tribulation Believers.   You mention that the difference between the Church and tribulation believers lies in the basis of our faith. You wrote “we believe though we have not seen”,  “we” being the Church. How then do you explain the apostles and all who came to faith as a result of being with Jesus and witnessing the miracles during his ministry on earth? I believe they are considered a part of the Church since the old testament saints end with John the Baptist. Jesus even specifically mentions to Thomas when he needed to see His hands and feet for proof, saying “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”  This leads me to believe the difference between the two believers lies solely in the Holy Spirit, which seals us as we are reborn into a new creation. What are your thoughts?

Back Slidden Brides Maids?

Q.  I am confused. Most bible commentaries I have read suggest that the foolish virgins represent Christians who have become ‘backslidden’ and do not seek a true relationship with Our Lord or those who have been ‘given over to their sin’ (1 Cor 5:5), but haven’t yet cried out to God for the mercy of His Grace. I would be grateful for your comments.

Is Israel At Peace?

Q.  Some teachers who deny Psalm 83 as a prophecy claim that Israel is now living in the time of peace that will cause them to be taken by surprise when the battle of Ezekiel 38 comes.  I know you believe in Psalm 83, but do you think the part about them living in peace could be true?

A Perfect Body?

Q. When we are raised (or raptured) and given the perfect bodies, will we be able to sin? Will we have the capacity for it or even the conception of it? Or even temptation? Thank you so much for answering questions, and may God bless you a thousand times!

Clean And Unclean

Q.  Could you explain Isaiah 66:17.  Is this saying that when Jesus returns all those eating pigs and rats and other abominable things will be condemned?

Denying God

Q. My friend has accused me, and I admit I’m guilty as charged , of believing in the Hebrew God, Jesus and the Bible without considering every possible alternative god, theory, or ancient writing. He seems to think there any many Christian-like writings that preceded the Bible and therefore detract from its uniqueness.

I’ve tried to sum it all up for him with a bible based world view, and the need to be born again and sealed with the Holy spirit to be led to all truth but he thinks its a intellectual cop out.  I don’t want to give up on him, but it may have to come to that point as everything is “yes, but …” for him.  The one final thing I’m looking to provide for him is the uniqueness of Jesus. What He did that no one else or no other created entity or “god” could have done.

Tribulation Believers

Q.  You have said that tribulation believers will not have the same guarantee that God will keep their salvation firm and safe as we (the church) do.  I’ve been reading and I can see the difference between the two groups, but a couple of questions came to my mind. Could you please explain to me why the different treatment for those two groups since God does not make any difference between persons, or in this case does he?

A Baptism Question

Q.  I have been born again for more than three years and have not been baptized. I live in South Africa and we don’t have a church here that believes like I do, only the Dutch Reformed church which believes in replacement theology and practices infant baptism. There is no other church in our town or surrounding towns.  Can my wife baptize me?  She is the only person I can ask that I’m certain off that is born again. Please help!!!!!!!
