The Joy Of Giving

Q.   Today I gave some money to a hungry homeless man at a stop light. I felt immense joy that I was able to bless him and I felt I should have done even more for him. Is it wrong for me to feel great joy when giving or helping the less fortunate or am I to turn that Joy over to the Lord and just be thankful that He has chosen to Save me and give me eternal life.  I do not want to rob the Lord of what is rightfully His and I desire to be an obedient servant to Him but the joy and happiness that filled my heart today was almost immeasurable.  What do you think?  Can you share some Scripture about this experience with your response?

How Could It Happen So Fast?

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.

Jewish But Doesn’t Know It?

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.

Was Rabbi Kaduri A Prophet?

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.

How Did Paul Become A Disciple?

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.

A Family Member Won’t Forgive Me

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.

Are We Fighting Against The Will Of God?

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?
