Q. Re: Why Did Paul Go To Jerusalem? This leads me to ask, then, did Paul die an “untimely” death? . . . and do people (particularly believers) sometimes die “untimely” deaths?
Q. Re: ISIS, Islam, And The End Times. How can Islam led by ISIS be the end times dominant religion when the Bible clearly states that there will be an amalgamation of all religions led by the false prophet? ISIS isn’t even representative of most of ISLAM, though it seems to be growing, and I can’t see Israel accepting this Godless religion on any terms.
Q. Is it possible for someone to have faith in Jesus without repenting of their sins? If so, how does one go about repenting of their sins the biblical way?
Q. I’ve been reading more and more about ISIS expansion and recruitment in the world, the latest is in Tunisia and now Cyprus is concerned. Could it be that ISIS is the vehicle used by the Anti-Christ to come to power, meaning that Islam will be the ruling power in the world at the return of Jesus? Also, does the Bible mention beheading as a form of punishment for Christians in the end times, which would also support the belief that Islam will be the ruling power?
Q. I’ve come across a verse I hadn’t either considered before, or just hadn’t thought about. “Behold, you are wiser than Daniel! There is no secret that can be hidden from you! (Ez. 28:3).
I know the Lord was sending a message to the ruler of Tyre through Ezekiel, but my question is, how did Ezekiel know about Daniel, and how did the ruler of Tyre seemingly have all this knowledge?
Q. The Jews have yet to complete the 70th week of Daniel to reconcile themselves with God. We know that it will be done by recognizing Jesus as their savior. His ministry lasted for 3 1/2 years. Why isn’t that counted towards the 7 years of the 70th week leaving 3/1/2 years for the Great Tribulation?
Q. My questions concern Paul’s last visit to Ephesus where he was warned, more than once by people prophesying, prompted by the Spirit, that Paul should not go there, but he did so and ignored their warnings. Then, once he got there, he appeared to submit to the Judaizers in order to appease them and show that he was an Observant Jew, and did uphold following Law. Amazing, since he earlier taught so vehemently against the Law and he himself coined the word Judaizer.Why, in your opinion, did he do this?
Q. I was wondering what your source is when you say according to “Jewish history” or “Jewish tradition.” I listen to your mp3 studies all the time. In fact I burn them to a disc and listen to them during my morning drive to work. I have searched the Internet over and cannot find a Jewish tradition or Jewish history site. I really enjoy all the historical background that you add to your studies. If I could only find a church that teaches like you do, I would show up every Sunday.
Q. We give our tithe to the church and the money goes for all kinds of needs for the church and different ministries. There are so many needs in our church community and we have missionary needs as well. I know some of the money goes to these things but when you see churches buying things that don’t help much like a $100,000 sign to advertise what is going on or upcoming events, I have this feeling something is wrong. Hope you can help me out with this.
Q. Why is a large segment of the Christian community so vehemently opposed to the idea of the Rapture? No matter how many times the Scriptures that support a Pre-Trib Rapture are pointed out to them, they deny that’s what they are saying and sayt the Rapture is a relatively new concept. It seems amazing to me that so many feel that Christians will have to suffer God’s Wrath in order to be saved. It is very frustrating to have any type of meaningful discussion on the subject as they are so entrenched in their belief, to the point of anger and attack.
