Is God A Spirit Or Not?

Q.  I always thought that God was a spiritual form only but after reading one of your commentaries it stated that when God was living in the Holy of Holies the high priest would visit with him once a year and a rope would be tied around his ankles to pull him out if he displeased God to keep God from destroying him if he sinned in his presence.  This indicates to me that God was in human form at this time.  Is this correct?

Believers Who Don’t Care About Sin?

Q.  When believers choose to live sinful lifestyles (i.e. have an attitude of I do not care whether I sin or not, since I love sin and it is my lifestyle), does that mean they would reject eternal security if their intent is to live a sinful lifestyle? Or does it reveal that they are not truly saved?

Explaining Luke 21:36

Q. Can you explain Luke 21:36 to me?  Maybe it is for Israel in the Tribulation, but I always wonder when I read it if we are supposed to pray about this.  It makes it sound as if we may not go in the rapture before the Tribulation if we don’t pray about it. I’ve never heard anyone explain this verse that I can remember. Continue reading…

Who Was Jesus Talking About ?

Q.  My question has to deal with the “elect” in the Olivet Discourse. Jesus was indeed talking to a Jewish crowd (his disciples). However, they were also His followers.  I’ve taken Matthew 24 to mean that He’s referring mostly to persecution of the Jews in His teaching. However, Luke 21:12, Jesus says, “…You will be brought before kings and ruler’s for my name’s sake.” Jews obviously don’t recognize “His name” as a deity, so clearly Jesus is referring to Christ followers at this point. Historically, both Jews and Christians have been brought before kings and rulers, and been persecuted.  So, I guess my question is, “Is Jesus talking to Jews, Christians, or both?” Also, do you believe the elect gathered from the 4 winds are Jews, or all of the Christians?

Abraham’s City

Q.   I have a question about Abraham in Hebrews 11:10: “For he (Abraham) looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God”.  Every time I read something you’ve written about The New Jerusalem being the permanent home of the Church and only the Church, that verse always comes up in my mind.  How do I rectify Abraham looking for a city whose maker and builder is God?  Is this city that he is looking for the same city we, the church, will occupy?  If so, is Abraham part of the church too?

Is God Being Fair?

Q.  Every now and then, we hear news about a Muslim or other faith person, who did not believe that Jesus is the Son of God, but then, they had a dream or vision where Jesus appeared to them, and there after they believed in Him. I know that Father God is sovereign and can do as He pleases. But, I also know, that He is Just. Therefore could it be expected, that one person is obliged to live by faith alone and not by what he sees, but another person gets supernatural “help” to believe, through an appearance, or a dream?  Would that be fair to us other mere mortals, who must rely on faith alone, because we have not super naturally seen?
