Parable Of The Sower. Follow Up

Q.  From the Parable of the Sower, is being fruitful referring to the nine Spiritual fruits born in our character? Do ‘deeds’ or ‘good works’ then have to follow ‘fruits’? At the believers’ judgment for rewards, will our Lord judge us on works or fruits or are they both the same thing? Thanks for your help.

What Does God’s Law Mean To Us?

Q.  I have been reading the book of Leviticus and my question is this. As a church saved by grace I find that we still refer back to the law, in this instance, the book of Leviticus for a very detailed and exacting guidance of righteous living before God. I know these guidelines were written for Israel but some of them were and are still relevant to our life today. Many churches will point a finger at specific scriptures that they believe support their doctrine (for example tattooing)   I would appreciate some clarity on this subject.

Did Jesus Resurrect Himself?

Q.   In John 8:10-11 Jesus is quoted: “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
Was Jesus really saying,  “If you continue in your sin of adultery, I may not be here to save you again from stoning?”  In reality we can not stop sinning all together until we are perfected in heaven.

For another question: John 10:30 Jesus said, “I and the Father are one.” Does this mean that when Jess was raised from the dead on the third day after his death, he in fact raised himself from the dead? I believe the Bible says that God the Father raised him but he is God also.

The Purpose Of The Lord’s Return

Q.  Regarding Israel and the Jews: The whole purpose of Christ’s Return is to redeem Israel and the Jews right?? Isnt that the sole purpose? Yes, the gentiles also reap the benefits, but that is the ultimate purpose right?
2nd question: During the time of the great Tribulation, are the Jews exempt from making the decision to take the mark of the beast or not? Im confused because it says ” let those flee to the mountains”.. that makes it sound like they wont have to make that decision.   What about Jews here in the US or anywhere else who don’t make it to Israel to ” flee to the mountains”?

Who Are The Cowards Of Rev. 21:8

Q.  Who are the cowards of Revelation 21:8?  One person wrote they are those that do not witness for Christ as a born again believer.  I am rather timid and although I try to witness, if only to give out Bible tracts, this troubles me.

God’s Will Or Human Expectation?

Q.  What is the difference between submitting to the direction God/Jesus has for our lives and doing things because we are Christian?  Example.  All my life I have worked with the kids at church doing Christmas plays, puppets, etc.  I struggle with “Is this the direction God had for my life?” vs. “I do these things because that is what we are to do as Christian people.”  I go on mission trips because I feel it’s my responsibility to help others.  I haven’t ever had this great sense of being called to do something.  I do the things I do because that is what is expected.  Am I wrong?  Will these be burned as wood, hay and stumble at the bema seat?
