Times And Seasons

Q. I have two questions. My first question; in the book of Genesis God says that He would no longer contend with the spirit of man forever and He says that man’s life would be 12o years. Clearly after He said that man lived past that number, so what did He mean?

My second question; in Acts 1:7 Jesus says, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.” I know that Jesus also admonishes us to be able to discern the seasons and even rebukes the pharisees for being able to discern the weather but not the season of His then coming and His return in these last days. Can you help me understand and could you put this in context for me? Continue reading…

Tis The Season, Follow Up

Q. I just read your article, Tis The Season . 2008 and have a comment.

A member of my family has been in the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization for many years and once used the passage Jeremiah 10:3-4 to accuse the rest of the family as “worshiping” the Christmas tree because he said this passage is describing a Christmas tree.  I think that, in context, the passage refers to the people carving a god from the tree, adorning or covering it in gold and silver, and then worshiping it instead of the One True God. I personally do not even have a Christmas tree any longer but I did when I had small children at home.  Instead of worshiping it, as soon as the season was over I threw it in the trash.

What About Those Who Never Heard Of Him?

Q. Many people think of Christians as being arrogant because we believe that Jesus is the only way to salvation. In discussions with non believers; even those who are not hostile but curious and seeking, the question comes up about all the people throughout history who died never hearing about Jesus. I don’t know how to answer them. Continue reading…

Tis The Season, Follow Up

Q. The time of Jesus birth was at the Fall Feast of Tabernacles. ( He tabernacles with us, God with us, His name Emanuel, God with us) Not The Jewish new year. He was born in a booth that was commanded from God that the Jews do during the feast of booths. The table inside the booth that they put the holy bread on is called a manger.  (Jesus, bread of life placed on a table, manger) Just wanted you to know so we can more accurately celebrate our Wonderful Lord!

Satan’s 7,000 Year Lease?

Q. I have heard and read it many times that God gave Adam the earth on a ‘lease’ for only 7,000 years. For this reason, when Adam fell and forfeited the earth to Satan, Satan only has 7,000 years to have dominion on this earth. After that Jesus Christ arrives in His Second Advent to reclaim the earth, etc.

Where is the express scripture that says that the earth is on a ‘lease’ of 7,000 years. If there is no express scripture. How can this be inferred? Continue reading…

Are UFO’s Mentioned In The Bible?

Q. I have a question about UFOs. With all the media coverage lately regarding UFOs, I’m just wondering what your opinion of them is. Does the Bible in anyway allude to UFOs, or discuss them as part of the “endtimes?” Continue reading…

A Course In Miracles

Q. I have a question regarding recent ‘new age’ teachings. Specifically I would like to know what you think of ‘A course in miracles’ and other materials very similar to it.  There are a lot of people I know who say they are believers in Jesus Christ but also embrace these teachings as well.

There was a time, before I was born again, that I too thought these teachings were enlightened.  Now I look back and wonder if these teachings are harmless or the devil in disguise?  Doesn’t the devil parade around like an angel of light? Continue reading…

Understand The Signs Of The Times

Q. I wanted to comment on your article about Mr. Obama  possibly being the anti Christ. I agree with your article except I want to point out one thing that Christians seem to do that is so wrong and unscriptural.
My husband and I came out of 10 years of Jehovah’s witnesses and I am very leary of anyone setting dates. I can’t count how may times I have read  articles that mention certain dates as “the one” and those dates have come and gone and we are still here and all we have done is to make people not want to believe anything we have to say. Continue reading…
