On Line Forums

Q. I am a member of an online forum.  Since the election there are some who have posted their fears of Mr. Obama and you can guess how they have been attacked.  I would like for you to show me how you would answer someone who has taken scripture (it is clear they do not understand what they are using) and twisted it’s meaning.

The Ark And The 2nd Temple

Q. Thank you for this site.  What happened to Aaron’s rod and the manna in the ark of the covenant (1 Kings 8:9)?

Also, I read somewhere that the Roman general Titus entered the Holy of Holies before the second temple was destroyed and was surprised because all he found was an empty room.  The account I read by Josephus, however, simply states that a Roman soldier threw a torch at the temple, and it went up in flames.  I figure that Titus wouldn’t have been struck dead because God’s glory had already departed.  What are your thoughts on these?

The Time Of The Anti Christ, Follow Up

Q. My question comes from reading the last sentence of your question titled The Time Of The Anti Christ. When you say that “There will no doubt be “Christians” in the world at that time (after the rapture) because the disappearance of the “Church” will bring fence sitters to faith.”  Are you therefore saying that those who come to believe during the tribulation will also be called Christians although they will not be part of the church?  I guess I always thought of them as “tribulation saints”, and the Church as Christians.  Therefore all that believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he died for their sins are all called Christians (John 3:16) even though they are not part of the church?

He Who Sits On The Throne

Q. My question is concerning Revelation chapter 4 verses 2 and 3.

Rev 4:2  And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
Rev 4:3  And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

Who is the one who sits upon the throne?  Is this Jesus?  If it is, how does it fit with these verses in chapter 5? Continue reading…

New Testament Restoration

Q. Our friends recently cut all ties with us when we did not attend a New Testament Restoration Meeting.  One of the topics was celebrating the Lord’s Supper as a full meal every Sunday.  We are not convinced that the Lord’s supper must be a full meal, celebrated weekly.  With the emphasis on ‘must be’.  The full meal part is a concern because the preparation and menu have the potential of distracting from the remembrance of all that Jesus did for us.  We are startled to think that our friendship has been destroyed over this topic.  Any thoughts? Continue reading…

Another Sabbath Year?

Q. Thank you for letting your light shine. I believe your ministry is a beacon of light for believers to see so they can stay the course!

As we can all see, the course is coming to a very sudden end. My question is about sabbatical cycles. I recently heard that Daniels 70th week has to start at the beginning of a sabbatical week. This year was the beginning of a sabbatical cycle so if it didn’t start this year, the soonest it could start would be in another 7 years. At the rate that prophecy is being fulfilled on a daily basis, I can’t see this dragging out another 7 years? Any opinion? Continue reading…

Married, or Not?

Q. I absolutely love your site and have told everyone I know about it. My question is, I know that Jesus died for us so that we may be forgiven. I have been with my fiance for 6 years and lived together for 4 and we have 2 children together. We basically feel married. We want to get married but I don’t want to rush down to the court house, that’s not really what every little girl dreams of.

So anyway we’re going to get married, we have 2 kids, and we live together. I now have turned my life around and came back to Christ but do not feel like I need to leave Him cause we’re not married yet. Do you think I would not make it in the rapture or go to heaven for this reason?  I have a relationship with God and try to do everything else right. I also ask for forgiveness all the time. But will I be forgiven even if I know I will commit the same sin again(in my case sex before marriage). I do feel guilty all the time, but I know that that’s the devil trying to make me feel unworthy of God’s grace. Whats your perspective? Continue reading…
