Understanding Isaiah 53:4-5

Q. Isaiah 53:5 has been one of my favorite scriptures for a while now, with it’s promises of healing prophesied long before Jesus physically took all of our sins, sicknesses, sorrows, etc. on the cross. But obviously there is more than just physical healing mentioned. In fact, the verse basically summarizes the entire gospel in advance. My question is this. What is the difference between transgression and iniquity?

Rapture Or 2nd Coming

Q.. Thank you for your teaching and ministry, Mr. Kelley.

The Lineage Of Jesus

Help! My Relationship Does Not Honor The Lord

Q. I am saved and love the Lord and want so badly to honor him but I am in a relationship that does not honor the Lord.  Many times, way too many to count I have tried to end the relationship. And I confess the sin desiring to make my relationship right with God.  I hate that I am caught up in this relationship and my life is truly miserable because of it. I haven’t been able to free myself from it and I feel like a total failure before the Lord. I hate what my life has become; the sin entanglement is sucking the life out of me.  Why can’t I muster the courage to end it once and for all?   What hope do I have?

More On Zombies In The Bible

Q.  Re: Zombies In The Bible,Follow Up.  Could the people in Rev. 9:6 who “will not be able to die to escape from the terrible pain of the scorpion stings they will have received” be suffering from a paralysis caused by the stings?  If these people were totally immobilized(but still conscious) where they could not move or even speak then they may seek death and long to die, but will be unable to do anything about it.
