I am confused about the OSAS answer you gave to the recent question posted about that. I always thought that if a person does not experience the conviction of the Holy Spirit about their ongoing sins after saying the prayer that maybe they said it flippantly and did not really mean it.
I have heard it said that when the original Passover happened, the Jewish people actually made a cross in blood on their door for the angel to “pass over” their house to avoid death. If this was the case, wouldn’t this highly symbolic act be easily read today by the Jewish people?
You listed four things that you believe can prevent believers from being delivered from their afflictions, putting a very fine point on the issue. I know I cannot fully understand what’s going on inside me, so it would seem that I am doomed to a life of (mostly) unanswered prayer.
Q. This may seem to be a weird thought and question but I think Barak Obama might be the anti-Christ. He could be very well liked by whites, blacks, Muslim, Israel, etc. Do you have any thoughts on this? Has anyone else asked the question?
Q. I just found your site last week and have been on it every day since. I have studied the book of Revelation several times but reading your articles has given me a new excitement as I review your articles on the end times. You have an amazing site.
I have been told by a Christian Jew that the Feast of the Trumpets is the “The feast of the unknown day and hour”. And that will be the day of the Lord’s Second Coming and could be the day of the Rapture as well. He said this feast happens every seven years and is the only feast that is on the first day of the month. That in the Torah it says that two witnesses were sent out on the 29th day to watch when the first sign of the crescent moon would appear and the feast would begin.
Today I read this letter “OSAS & Unanswered Prayer” on your site. It’s my shame but I often become very discouraged if I read such a “testimony”. Can this happen that a believer trusts her/his problems or troubles to the Lord and she/he not receives solution, deliverance?
Q. I know that Hebrews 9:27 says “man is destined to die once and after that to face judgment”. Does that mean people are judged right after they die, or does it refer to the “The Day of Judgment” where everyone will be judged at once?
In light of OSAS, I have to wonder how the Lord will handle the fate of the flamboyant, outrageous, pontifical,and sometimes outright deceitful preachers we hear and see on radio/tv? Do they go home at night and pray for forgiveness?
A teacher used Romans 11:22 defending the statement that to remain saved we must follow the commandments or be cut off. He also cites James 2:14and 24-26 to back this up. And if we commit “Deadly Sins” our souls are dead and a person is not saved anymore.
It is my understanding that the bad weather (earthquakes, tornados, etc.) that we have now are demonic and not ‘acts of God’. I have found many scriptures that I feel back this indirectly but none that say directly that the weather we are having is from the evil in the world. Can you help me?
