What Does The Bible Say About Israel’s Future?

Commentary by Jack Kelley

Contrary to all the polls and predictions Benyamin Netanyahu and his Likud party have won another election. Some Israeli observers are calling this a landmark victory, because it came in spite of (or maybe as a reaction to) unprecedented external meddling in the country’s election process.

Spiritual Gifts … Occupy Part 2

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

(Note: If you haven’t already done so, I suggest reading “Occupy Until I Come” as an introduction to this study.)

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and He gives them to each one, just as He determines (1 Cor. 12:7,11).

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others faithfully, administering God’s grace in it’s various forms (1 Peter 4:10).

Rapture References, Part 2

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

In part one of this series we explored some of the clearest hints from the Old Testament that the Lord has always intended to rapture the Church before the End Times judgments begin. This time we’ll continue with a two part survey of the New Testament. Because Paul was the first to reveal the mystery of the Rapture, we won’t expect to find a clear explanation in the Gospels, but since we already know about it, we’ll be able to spot a couple of hints here and there. Shall we continue?

What Does The Bible Say? Tribulation And Wrath

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Recently I was reading a new book on Revelation by an author who subscribes to the pre-wrath rapture position. I don’t recommend this or any other mid-trib, pre-wrath, or post-trib book. I only read them myself because my belief in the pre-trib position is solid enough to not be shaken, and I feel the need to know about the current thinking on other positions in case I’m asked.

Life On Earth In The Millennium

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Hal Lindsey once speculated that at his judgment Satan hurled two accusations at God. “You’re not just and You have no love.” In past studies we have seen how God demonstrated His perfect justice through Israel and His perfect love through the Church.  In this study, we’ll talk about a time in the future when both perfect justice and perfect love will govern the lives of people on Earth.

Occupy Until I Come

The Olivet Discourse … Luke’s Version

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Students of prophecy often pay more attention to Matthew’s version of the Olivet Discourse because of its greater length and detail. But when we bypass Luke’s account, we miss one third of the Lord’s message. That’s because the disciples asked the Lord three questions and in Matthew 24 He only answered the last two. Also, it’s Luke’s answer to their first question that confirms the whole message as it relates to the End Times.

The Sequence Of Events In Rev. 20-22

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

In this study, I’d like to take another look at Revelation 20-22 specifically for the purpose of clarifying the sequence of events that are contained therein. This won’t be a verse by verse study, but will focus on what I believe to be the way John wanted us to understand what he was telling us.

God’s Plan In A Nutshell

Perspective by Jack Kelley

You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were blameless in your ways until wickedness was found in you (Ezekiel 28:12,15).

Will He Find Faith On The Earth?

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I’ve studied what the Bible says about healing for years and years, and two things remain clear to me.  One is that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).   Another is He said anyone with faith in Him would do the things He did (John 14:12).  But the results we’re experiencing in much of the Western Church today are far different from those attributed to Him in the Bible.  A logical mind can only conclude that something has changed.  Since it can’t be Him, that leaves only us.

Old Testament Promises

Q.  I cringe when I hear Christians claiming Old Testament promises like Jeremiah 29:11 and 2 Chron. 7:14 because it seems they were specifically for Israel  often at a specific point in time. People want to claim Israel’s benefits, but not their judgments!  Is it wrong to claim promises such as those listed above? How can we discern what was for Israel alone vs. what can apply to us today? Is it based on personal vs national promises? I’m confused.

Martyrs And Saints

Q.  Scripture tell us that man is appointed once to die and then judgment.  The Bema seat is for the Bride and the great white throne is for all those whose names are not found in the Book of Life.  When do the tribulation martyrs/ saints receive their judgment and also the old testament saints?

Is God In Everyone And Everything?

Q.  Several colleagues of mine are involved in new age mysticism and eastern religions. A common belief of theirs is that “god is in everyone and everything” and they often talk about “seeking oneness” with the universe. Could you please help point me to scriptures that address this directly?

OSAS … Again!

Q.  I am an Ordained Minister of the Gospel and I must admit, I have used much of your teaching in my messages! One of the questions I’m commonly asked is about OSAS. This first occurred when a member of my church asked me if that meant she could “Commit murder and still be saved and go to heaven.” I have also been told by critics of OSAS that this is a license to sin.  I have been reading your books and commentaries on this interesting subject and must admit that you have changed my mind and I thank you. However, what is to keep some one who is saved from turning his/her back on Jesus and “going astray”?

Hagar Moments

Q.  I was wondering if it’s possible for us to have what I call “Hagar” moments in our own lives.  I mean moments where God seems to have promised something, but then something else comes along which would seem like a better choice, but would only lead to disaster?

Prayer Language And Tongues

Q.  Your response to “Born Again Twice” mentions prayer language, i.e. speaking in tongues.  I don’t get this whole tongues thing.  I’ve never had a prayer language; and frankly after asking for it many times in an attempt to do all God would have me do, without receiving, I don’t believe it’s for every Christian otherwise God would have given me one.  Do you believe every Christian must speak in tongues or have a prayer language?

Creationism And Evolution

Q. How does one reconcile the arguments of creationism vs. evolution? I hold fast to the belief that God created man, but, with overwhelming proof of the concept of evolving is there any proof outside faith that at some point God made man as he is today and in doing so broke from the predecessor “cave man” etc. Is there a blending of the two concepts that is acceptable to the Christian faith?
