Will The Anti-Christ Know Who He Is In Advance?

Q. In reading your articles on The Antichrist and Mr. Obama, a question came to mind.  Does the antichrist know he is the antichrist?  I can see someone like Obama, jumping into the world scene as some kind of savoir of the world, starting off with good intentions, but ending up letting the power and adoration get to him, distorting his thinking and passions.  At that time, he would be a prime target for Satan to come and possess him to do the unthinkable.  So my question, before Satan takes over, does the antichrist know what’s coming?

Why Did Paul Circumcise Timothy?

Q. I have a question about when Paul circumcises Timothy in Acts 16:3 because of the Jews. Just before that there was a big deal made about not requiring the Gentile believers to follow the law and they even held a committee on it. Several leaders in the faith sent the decision out to Antioch and it was decided that the Gentiles were not required to be circumcised. Paul was a part of this group. Right after that Paul circumcises Timothy whose father was greek. Why on earth would he do such an about face? Continue reading…

Are Christians Subject To Leviticus?

Q. I was reading the book of Leviticus about all the laws (covenant)  that God told to Moses concerning the Israelites.  Is this a Jewish thing or should all Christians follow these laws, today.  If so, we are in a lot of trouble.  I know many people that eat pork and marine life “that have no fins.”   Also, I have read a lot about dual-theology!  Can you explain? It is like Jews and Christians are different in God’s eyes. Continue reading…

Besetting Sin Or Practicing Sin?

Q. If one has a bad habit (tobacco) and has the habit from before they are saved to while they are saved, it is a besetting sin or is it practicing Sin? Regardless, I’m OSAS since day one and more secure with the help of your answers to questions in the past. I love God’s Word and love telling people about the Lord when I get the chance and look forward to His return, my conscience is sharp when I know I’ve hurt someone or done wrong. It sometimes feels as if I’m not changing much though. How can I tell that God is still making me holy (sanctified)? Continue reading…

Is There Grace For Men Like Me?

Q. I understand from you’re e-site that you are of the OSAS opinion/belief.  I am not sure a bit confused on this issue but I do hope that perhaps it may be the case, it does give some hope for the likes me.

Given that I am a former minister and during my time as a minister hit my wife on more than occasion and leaving ministry because of this, falling into drug use, adultery, alcoholism and defaming Christ using the most filthy language and curses; I hope most earnestly that there is grace even for men of my kind, with or without OSAS.

Joel 2 And Ezekiel 38

Q. As I read Joel 2:1-29, it seems to me that the passage; describes the battle that starts the Day of the LORD; the turning of Israel back to the Lord;the Lord’s deliverance and the immediate after effects, such as the outpouring of his spirit. The rest of Joel 2:30-3:21 deal with part of the Tribulation period and the battle of Armageddon.

The question I am trying to get to is from here. I believe Ezek.38,39 and Joel 2 are descriptions of the same battle. Continue reading…

Who Was He Talking About?

Q. To whom is Jesus speaking in the following passage?  WHO will be handed over, etc.?

“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matt. 24:6-14)

Many thanks for the clarification. Continue reading…

Where Is Paradise?

Q. In a recent question you said that Paradise is part of Hades where those who died in faith went to wait for Jesus to die for them.  You said after the Resurrection He took them to Heaven.  But in 2 Cor. 12:2 and 4 Paul spoke of going to the 3rd Heaven which he called Paradise, and in Rev. 2:7 it speaks of the tree of life being in the paradise of God.  Based on these two verses which are written after the cross and happened after the cross, it appears to me that paradise is not part of Hades. Continue reading…

Good Nephilim?

Q. I have been studying a lot of ancient history and have noticed something interesting…there are over 300 flood accounts in the legends and folklore of different cultures.  This of course makes sense to me because the Bible tells us of the flood.  However, something else seems to be emerging as well.  Many of the ancient legends contain a visitation by a being who brings to whichever culture, whether it be Sumerian, Egyptian, Myan, or whomever, advanced technology in many different forms from architecture to agriculture.  This being also teaches against human sacrifice, to love one another and treat each other with respect.  Depending on the culture, he has been described as a god, or part man part god.  Is it possible, this was a good Nephilim?
