Q. Re: “How Will they Merit Eternal Life”. Your answer raised a few questions in my mind, regarding the tribulation survivors found worthy to enter the kingdom (The Sheep) You said they will have earned eternal life once their natural life ends. Will there be medicine, doctors, hospitals, all of life’s technology that we depend on now, after Jesus returns and sets up his kingdom? If the Tribulation survivors will be re-populating Planet Earth, won’t they be in need of all these things?
Q. I’ve been wondering, is there anything in prophecy that addresses the radioactive contamination from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown? I live near the CA coast and have a retreat up north. Everything I read from prophecy buffs says the whole Pacific Coast and Hawaii will be radioactive soon. Frankly, the East Coast isn’t any safer for a number of reasons. How should we address this threat when people bring it to mind?
Q. What part does repentance have in becoming saved? We often read we must just ask for forgiveness and believe in Jesus.
Q. Thank you for your willingness to discuss anything in scripture in a reasonable and logical way, without contention. I have a question about those who are saved as described in Matt. 25, the Sheep and Goats judgment at the end of the Great Tribulation. The last verse, 46, says about the sheep: “…but the righteous into eternal life”. Since these survived the Tribulation in their normal body form, how is it that they merit eternal life by their works to the brothers of Jesus, the Jews?
Q. Ezekiel 38:16 states that one result of God’s defense of Israel will be that “Then all the nations will know that I am the LORD”. Would you please explain the probable extent of this prophecy? How many and who will this prophecy apply to?
Q. In your response entitled OSAS and Galatians 5:19-21 you state that “people who live like this are giving evidence that they are not saved and therefore won’t inherit the Kingdom.” I received Christ as my Savior trusting his death and resurrection to pay the penalty for my sins before I went to college. But once I went to college I began drinking excessively and partying. I would try to compartmentalize my behavior and live a” Christian” life except for my drinking, but that as you know that is impossible. My question is then, since my life was “characterized” by this behavior and this was occurring nearly every weekend where do I stand as far as Galatians and your comment about it? I have confessed my sin since I left college. It took awhile to break free from excessive drinking but I have recommitted myself to Christ since then, however sometimes I still have doubts about my forgiveness and my standing before the Lord.
Q. This is a question which has been on my mind for years and is blocking my concentration on you article on The Nephilim. So here it is. If Noah’s line was the only uncontaminated line left on earth before the flood, where did the wives of the sons of Noah come from? Why weren’t they contaminated, too?
Q. My Husband and I were having the discussion on prayer. How do you explain to someone that even when God already knows the outcome of something, he still wants us to pray. Can you please explain this?
Q. Is it possible for you to give some kind of approximation of when you think the Battle of Ezekiel 38/39 will start? It seems like all the factors are falling into place. Haven’t huge amounts of gas and oil been found in Israel and wouldn’t this be motivation for Russia to start this battle? I’m wondering also about the other battles involving Damascus. Aren’t these supposed to happen before the battle of Ezekiel? Thanks so much for all the work you put into your website.
Q. I can’t seem to find an answer to this question. In 1 Thessalonians 4:16 and 1 Corinthians 15:52, the verses reference the dead rising first during the rapture. I don’t believe in soul-sleep, so I am confused by the word “dead.” I try to make sense of it by thinking those verses refer to the dead, but saved in Christ, rising first and the church being caught up second. But I’m confused as to why God would want to raise up dead bodies. Do you know what I mean? Most of those bodies have long ago rotted away and turned to dust, so what is going to be raised up if their spirits are already in Heaven? Thanks so much for your help! Continue reading…
