Q. If we are in the end times 2 Thes. 2 speaks to a falling away. But Acts 2 seems to speak to an end times revival. Can you reconcile these two apparently contradictory verses?
Q. I have always believed in OSAS. but, how do we mesh OSAS with what Paul says in Galatians 5:19-21? I have 3 adult children who all profess to be saved but all are committing fornication I guess. They all seem dedicated to their mate but there is no marriage for any of them. Paul seems pretty definite when he says here that none of them who are involved in sexual immorality will ever see the kingdom of God.
Q. I believe in justification being a one time thing. But people in my small group say you have to be sanctified also and that takes time. Could you please expand on what sanctification is and whether it’s something we do or God does. I would like to know how long sanctification takes and how do we know when it’s been completed enough to now feel confident that we’re going to make it to glorification.
Q. There are some who look at Revelation 12 and match the sign that John saw in the heavens to a computer program called Starry Night that accurately tracks past and future movements of stars, planets, sun, moon, etc. and the description matches very well in Sept of 2017. If Revelation 12 is considered “mid trib” then could it mean that the beginning of the seven years would be March of 2014?
Q. Thank you for your daily insight. I have a question about a verse, Luke 7:47. The last sentence really struck me as odd so I must be misinterpreting. In the previous verses Jesus explained that the man with the biggest debt forgiven would have the most love for the man he had owed. Was he implying in Luke 7:47 that since the woman had more sins, she would love Jesus more than a righteous man?
Q. I’ve been a Christian for nearing 45 years. There’s one thing that I can’t wrap my head around. We’re to come to God with our needs. We’re to praise Him, thank Him and worship Him. It’s my understanding that we’re also to “bless Him.” He blesses us all of the time. I see it in my life all the time. He is everything that is good. He’s able to bless us. What I don’t understand is how we’re supposed to “bless” Him! How do we do that?
Q. You stated that as of the beginning of the Great Tribulation Satan will no longer have access to God, but will be confined to Earth. I, and everybody I know, always thought that BEFORE creation the earth was in total chaos because Satan was cast down from Heaven with a third of the angels that followed him. And that he was ejected from heaven for good! We understood that God immediately got rid of him and his followers and they were all thrown to earth to do all the evil we have witnessed throughout history. Does that mean I and so many others have misunderstood this point?
Q. In Joshua 5:13-15, Joshua met a figure that appeared out of nowhere with a sword in his hands. Joshua asked who is he and he answered he is the Commander of the Army of lord, Joshua fell and worshiped him. Since angels like Micheal doesn’t need human to worship, that figure couldn’t be an angel. Maybe you can enlightened me on this point.
Q. Do you know what the “sign of the Son of Man” is? Some say the cross, some tell me it’s the fish sign. Jesus said it like we should all know what it is.
Q. I was listening to your teachings on the Millennium and you mentioned the judgment of the Sheep and Goats. Right after that you said that ONLY Christians will be entering the Millennium. What about the individuals who did not receive the mark, were able to survive the Tribulation, and somehow never became believers?
