Q. The scriptures speak mostly of the physical elements of life in the New Jerusalem and nothing about how we will relate to each other. Different books have shown our new home as physical and real, more real than this one, if that can be imagined. But here is where I am coming from. I lost a woman that I loved some time ago and even though I know I will see her again, will our relationship be the same or can it be? We were in love, and I want that again and not some combination of best friends/siblings/soul mates. Frankly, that kind of relationship is not enough for me. I want my wife back and, and I mean no disrespect, but if we are together as ‘friends’ only, then Heaven has lost some of its luster.
Q. Doesn’t Babylon have to be re-established as an economic super power before the rapture can occur? The way I understand it, the world will mourn the loss of Babylon when it is destroyed which indicates it would be similar in stature to New York or London. This would indicate the rapture being further out in time versus imminent since building the city into something significant would take many years from this point. I am eager to know what your thoughts are on this.
Q. I have a question from a friend of mine. He asked me if He is Saved if he sometimes feels no remorse what so ever for sinning even when he knows its wrong. He says the only thing he gets is a “maybe I shouldn’t do this” feeling and that it often goes away. Please help me answer him!! Continue reading…
Q. I am convinced that the anti-Christ is coming through the Muslim nation. I believe that Europe will be too weak to produce a man that the world will see as an effective leader who will be able to solve the worlds problems. The Muslim terrorists seem to send one group after another intent on destroying any one or thing in their paths to world domination. The Islam Mahdi will bring justice (their type of justice) to the world according to their religion. What are the chances that the Mahdi is the anti-Christ?
Q. I know homosexuality is a sin but I also know people have trouble with it because they do not understand why it is wrong for two guys or girls to love each other. I know it is Bibically wrong, but is there any moral component to this? For example I know stealing is a sin but that’s because it hurts the persons involved. I am certified to do psychological research so I am wondering why homosexuality is so wrong (besides the Bible saying it is a sin).
Q. I read today that a Muslim Scholars group is going to be uniting for a Caliphate which they believe will be centered in Turkey and that ISIS’s action are not in line with what the Koran describes. What do you make of this? Is this in Ezekiel?
Q. I notice that you stand with those who believe that the rapture does not have a set date, but instead a set number of believers who must be completed in order for it to take place. I was wondering if there were any clues given as to that number. I only remember reading “a multitude that could not be numbered” for the saints that stand behind the Lord at the final white throne judgment. Thank you for your insight and praise God there are those like you who encourage steadfast Christians to think.
Q. Re: Sin And Iniquity You wrote, “Everyone violates God’s law now and then, whether in thought or deed, so we’re all sinners. But those who live their lives in complete disregard for God’s laws are practicing iniquity.” I’m confused about the law. Doesn’t grace, Christ’s death on the cross, end the law? So if we are not following the law (Old Testament) are we as Christians living in iniquity or are we sinners saved by grace?
Q. My question is about Joel 2:28. I hear many people today claiming that the Lord has spoken to them through dreams and visions about how these end times are going to play out and how we need to prepare with food and arming ourselves. When I asked one of these persons to give me Bible verses to back this up they beat around the bush and I really didn’t get a verse of scripture. There are so many people claiming that they are getting words from the Lord with this method that I feel left out! The only Word I get from The Lord is in the Bible. So are they right and can this verse of scripture be used to back them up?
Q. Re: Daniel 9:24-27. How & why do you separate the 70th week from the 69th. There is no indication by Daniel that there is supposed to be a separation.
