In your response in “The Origin of Rain” you said, “Simple logic tells us that the rainbow God promised to Noah after the flood wouldn’t have been necessary for reassurance if they had often seen rain in the past.

Do you think that Isaiah 17 will be fulfilled at the same time as the Battle of Ezekiel 38-39?
Lately I’ve noticed a rash of so called prophets who are making predictions of catastrophic proportions. Some people sound very convincing, so what are some good references or guidelines we can look to when trying to determine if this person is truly gifted in prophecy, or just seeking attention?
I grew up in the Russian Orthodox church and my mom put a lot of icons all around the house. I never prayed to any of them, but how bad was it to grow up with icons on your bedroom wall?

Q. I would like to know if there is any evidence of a general time frame for the Isaiah 17 prophecy to be fulfilled? I see many Bible teachers mentioning that it could be fulfilled pretty soon given the current situation in Syria. Do you think there’s any merit to this view that the Bible might not be totally clear on when the prophecy will be fulfilled?

Why, in your opinion, did the 6 day war and the 1973 conflict not meet the substance of the Ezk 38-39 war? Obviously I expect that Turkey who did not participate is part of the answer, but Russia was very involved in both. Because as I sit, those two wars were pretty dead on. Where am I wrong?
Does god allow for re-marriage for any reason after a divorce? Is Matt19:9 a loophole people use?
What does the Bible say about a person’s past sins? What I mean is, I know that I am forgiven through my faith in Jesus and that God does not hold my sins against me any longer, but what about humans- what about the church?
