Finding Gog, Follow Up

Q. In your recent article, FINDING GOG, the following statement was made….

”The Bible clearly states that behind the human seats of government stand supernatural figures manipulating the thoughts and actions of the world’s leaders. These figures are in Satan’s employ, helping in his effort to wrest ownership of Planet Earth from its Creator.”

I would appreciate if you could provide scriptural reference to support this statement.  I am aware the Bible states clearly that God creates and establishes the kings of all nations, but can not find any supporting verses to clearly support the quote from this recent article.

Is 144,000 A Symbolic Number?

Q.  I would like to ask if it is possible that the number 144,000 is a symbolic number fullness?  It seems to me that in Revelation 7:4 is the symbolic figure of all Israel, and in Revelation 14:3 is a symbolic number fullness of the Gentiles.

Is Drinking Coffee Or Soda Sinful?

Q.  I’ve heard countless arguments from various Christians about not consuming alcohol. And, while I totally understand Christians choosing not to drink alcohol at all, the only verses in the Bible I can find regarding alcohol, is the sin of drunkenness. This, personally, isn’t an issue for me because I don’t drink alcohol at all.  But, then there are those certain religious groups who say that even the consumption of caffeine (soda and coffee) is sinful.

Where Are The Assyrians?

Q.  I have a question that has been troubling me and maybe your vast knowledge of scripture can answer it. I know what an important part the reformation of Israel is to the nearness of the end.  But in Isaiah 19:23-25 we are given a picture of what seems to be a close relationship between Egypt, Assyria and Israel. Where is this Assyria and shouldn’t we be seeing some sign of its  reappearing?  Is it the Kurdish people who are declaring a home land that closely resembles ancient Assyria?

Who Does The Father Draw? Follow Up

Q.  Concerning “Who Does the Father Draw?”…I totally agree with you except for the part that God doesn’t call everyone.  I believe He does, either through hearing the Word or through observation of creation (Romans 1:18-20; Psalm 19:1-4; Job 12:7-12). Also John 12:32 says “When I am lifted up I will draw all men unto Myself”. I truly believe that every lost person has been drawn by the Holy Spirit at some point in their lives, probably several times, but continued to reject that calling. Therefore, at the Great White Throne judgment no lost person will be able to accuse God that He isn’t fair because He never called them. Actually, I think we are in agreement that people send themselves to eternal judgment and that they did indeed have a choice.

Feast Days And Sabbaths

Q.  My question is: Why do we no longer celebrate The Feast Days, and Sabbath?  If  I am correct, Jesus freed us from this part of the old covenant, however many say we are not exempt from honoring them.  Also many say we should still have Saturday as our worship day rather than Sunday.

When Does Matt. 7:21-23 Take Place?

Q.  My question is this… Jesus said “I never knew you, Depart from Me ye that work iniquity.” ( Matt. 7: 21 – 23 ) When will this incident occur? Will it be at the Great White Throne Judgement? If this is the case, then these people must be in hell waiting trial and sentencing; there is no “get out of jail” card if you find yourself in hell, so why would they try to talk their way out of the situation?  Would they not know that it is over for them once they are in hell?

Was The Holocaust A Judgment Against Israel?

Q.  In view of a new book coming out about the holocaust, do you believe that Leviticus 26:14-39 was fulfilled (at least in part) by the holocaust?  In other words, was the holocaust a judgment brought about by Israel’s rejection of God?

Dead To The Law

Q.  I have been studying Romans 7 and understand it to mean that “The LAW” was the wife of man, and until it died we were bound by it. Now that it is dead we are able to become brides of Christ and if we try to live in both we are in a form of spiritual adultery.  I have two parts to my inquiry;
1. Am i correctly understanding this teaching?
2. Are we actually bound until death to our first spouse, and committing adultery by remarrying?

Saved But Not Born Again?

Q. I was reading one of your articles and you indicated that Christians who believe they will be saved have to be Born Again.  I was under the impression that all Christians who call upon the name of Jesus will be saved.  But it seems the article indicated that Christians can be Christian in name only.  Does this mean that they will not have eternal life.?  My understanding, in the article, they will be left behind at the Rapture.
I am a Catholic, from a child on and believe the Lord Jesus died for our sins.  I have since been Born Again, but would I have been saved without coming to the Born Again status?
