Q. Re: Will Having Sex Keep Me From The Rapture? My Bible says, ” fornicators will not inherit The Kingdom of God” 1 Cor. 6:9. Another litany of sins followed by “those who practice such things shall not inherit The Kingdom of God” is found in Gal.5:19-21 The Bible is very specific on our behavior (actions) that keeps us from The Kingdom of God. Paul calls them ‘the deeds of the flesh’. In 1 Cor. 6:11 Paul goes on to say, “such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our GOD.” How could a person who practices such as these be in The Kingdom of God?
Q. You mentioned in one of your writings that there are 613 basic laws. I believe, for salvation, no law is required but only by grace through faith we are saved. (But, do not kill, do not covet, do not steal, etc., are still valid in our lives, right?) So, what is the present status of the Law; usually known as the Mosaic Law, to a NT believer (and a non-believer)?
Q. Re: Numbers 8 : 6, 7 “Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them. And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle the water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.” Based on that, did John the Baptist baptize the Lord Jesus in the river Jordan by “sprinkling” or by “immersion”?
Q. We were under the belief that the Church will dwell in the New Jerusalem, with Jesus, as Kings and Priests. Your answer to the question “Where will the Lord Reign”, seems to contradict our belief, unless we are misunderstanding something. Can you please help us understand this issue?
Q. I have a question related to the Transfiguration of Jesus. Why did He only take three apostles to witness it instead of taking all twelve?
Q. Re: 2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” I have heard this interpreted in 2 ways: 1) This is the Rapture 2) This is Apostasy.
I personally lean toward Apostasy because there is so much of it right now. What are your thoughts?
Q. I have a question about the scoffers in 2 Peter 3:2-4. Are these scoffers the folks now who tend to frown on the idea of the Rapture of the Church (just kind of generically rolling their eyes at those who are pre-trib, I guess), or are they specific to the time just before the 2nd coming, scoffing in earnest?
Q. Regarding the Doers of the Word . When you say the only work that has any merit is work we do at His prompting and in His strength, would that include preparing and serving meals for those in need and things like that? We know He wants us to help those in need but what if we don’t necessarily feel that we were prompted for this specific activity?
Q. I just read your fabulous article (The Best Reason To Study Prophecy) and you were talking about studying one hour a day to become an expert. My question to you is if you would please give an example as to how you began your study in prophecy, for example did you read a verse and then read bible commentaries on the verse or did you read a book other than the Bible? And how did you know that that people you learned from were not false teachers? If you’re just a baby Christian how can you discern?
Q. Since the Bema will have already been passed, where is the judgment for Tribulation & Millennium saints? I think it must be the Great White Throne, but so many teach that that is only for unbelievers. What do you think?
