Q. In studying the Book of Revelation, we discover that during the Tribulation there will be a single global currency, a single global government and a single global religion. From a strictly logistical viewpoint, if the Rapture occurred in the next year or two, how could the anti-Christ all of a sudden “globalize” everything? Wouldn’t the world already need to have a uniform type of currency and government “in the works.” As far as the religion part is concerned, that could happen overnight, especially when the Church is gone. I definitely see the trend toward globalization – the EU is a perfect example, but we are far from having the entire world under one currency & government. I look forward to your thoughts on this.
Q. I have heard arguments that Gen. 12:3 applied only to Abram and not to his descendants. What is your response?
Q. I have a question regarding Ezekiel Chapter 39:28. Assuming it is possible that a person might not know that he or she is a Jew by birth, do you think it’s possible that one day a husband, let’s say, could wake up and say,”Honey, we are going to Israel.” And the wife asks, “why?”, and the husband says, “I really do not know but we ARE going to Israel.” I am married to a man who was orphaned at birth and knows almost nothing about his family history. So it seems to me this could be a plausible scenario. I believe when God says He will leave not one (of His people) behind that is exactly what He means. I would appreciate your opinion. And again thank you so much for all that you do.
Q. The internet is abuzz today with the news of the death of Ariel Sharon and the “unlocking” of the Rabbi Kaduri prophecy. As Christians, should we embrace this age Rabbi’s prophecy as true prophecy, or should we reject it as mysticism? Personally, I do not find anything in scripture that would lead me to believe this prophecy would be reliable.
Q. In order to be considered an apostle, one had to have been personally taught by the Lord and have seen Him in a post resurrection appearance. Paul did see a post resurrected Jesus, but he was never personally taught by Jesus before His resurrection, right? Couldn’t a person today say the same thing? They could say that Jesus came to them in His post resurrection body and taught them revelation pertinent to us today.
Q. Years ago, before I was a Christian, I hurt a family member. Since I came to faith in Jesus, I have repeatedly asked for forgiveness. The person refuses to forgive me, and has basically disowned me. I have asked the Lord for forgiveness for my past many times. But this person continues to express hatred toward me. This has caused great anguish, and I ask you…how do I reconcile this burden? The family member is not a Christian.
Q. Re: The Holocaust. Since the holocaust, the tribulation, etc., are a judgment from God for rejecting Him, does helping the Jews, such as what happened in WWII and will happen in the tribulation, constitute fighting against the will of God – God’s will apparently being that they suffer under that judgment?
Q. In Acts 8 : 3 we see Saul persecuting believers in Christ and sending them to prison. What legal authority did he have to do this? What is the main reason why he did this ?
Q. I was listening to a radio program the other night and a non-religious commentator made a statement that the angels murmured against God when God made man and he was not talking only about the fallen angels. He also made the comment that the angels do not really like us that much. I have searched the Scriptures and I can not find anything to support this view.
Q. Thru out the Bible the angels have been seen as males. Is there any scripture that portraits angels as females?
