Q. I was listening to a radio program the other night and a non-religious commentator made a statement that the angels murmured against God when God made man and he was not talking only about the fallen angels. He also made the comment that the angels do not really like us that much. I have searched the Scriptures and I can not find anything to support this view.
Q. Thru out the Bible the angels have been seen as males. Is there any scripture that portraits angels as females?
Q. In your recent article, FINDING GOG, the following statement was made….
”The Bible clearly states that behind the human seats of government stand supernatural figures manipulating the thoughts and actions of the world’s leaders. These figures are in Satan’s employ, helping in his effort to wrest ownership of Planet Earth from its Creator.”
I would appreciate if you could provide scriptural reference to support this statement. I am aware the Bible states clearly that God creates and establishes the kings of all nations, but can not find any supporting verses to clearly support the quote from this recent article.
Q. I would like to ask if it is possible that the number 144,000 is a symbolic number fullness? It seems to me that in Revelation 7:4 is the symbolic figure of all Israel, and in Revelation 14:3 is a symbolic number fullness of the Gentiles.
Q. I’ve heard countless arguments from various Christians about not consuming alcohol. And, while I totally understand Christians choosing not to drink alcohol at all, the only verses in the Bible I can find regarding alcohol, is the sin of drunkenness. This, personally, isn’t an issue for me because I don’t drink alcohol at all. But, then there are those certain religious groups who say that even the consumption of caffeine (soda and coffee) is sinful.
Q. I have a question that has been troubling me and maybe your vast knowledge of scripture can answer it. I know what an important part the reformation of Israel is to the nearness of the end. But in Isaiah 19:23-25 we are given a picture of what seems to be a close relationship between Egypt, Assyria and Israel. Where is this Assyria and shouldn’t we be seeing some sign of its reappearing? Is it the Kurdish people who are declaring a home land that closely resembles ancient Assyria?
Q. Concerning “Who Does the Father Draw?”…I totally agree with you except for the part that God doesn’t call everyone. I believe He does, either through hearing the Word or through observation of creation (Romans 1:18-20; Psalm 19:1-4; Job 12:7-12). Also John 12:32 says “When I am lifted up I will draw all men unto Myself”. I truly believe that every lost person has been drawn by the Holy Spirit at some point in their lives, probably several times, but continued to reject that calling. Therefore, at the Great White Throne judgment no lost person will be able to accuse God that He isn’t fair because He never called them. Actually, I think we are in agreement that people send themselves to eternal judgment and that they did indeed have a choice.
Q. My question is: Why do we no longer celebrate The Feast Days, and Sabbath? If I am correct, Jesus freed us from this part of the old covenant, however many say we are not exempt from honoring them. Also many say we should still have Saturday as our worship day rather than Sunday.
Q. My question is this… Jesus said “I never knew you, Depart from Me ye that work iniquity.” ( Matt. 7: 21 – 23 ) When will this incident occur? Will it be at the Great White Throne Judgement? If this is the case, then these people must be in hell waiting trial and sentencing; there is no “get out of jail” card if you find yourself in hell, so why would they try to talk their way out of the situation? Would they not know that it is over for them once they are in hell?
Q. In view of a new book coming out about the holocaust, do you believe that Leviticus 26:14-39 was fulfilled (at least in part) by the holocaust? In other words, was the holocaust a judgment brought about by Israel’s rejection of God?
