Proving The Bible Is The Word Of God

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:20-21.)

More On The Millennium

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The recent re-posting of my article on Restoring Planet Earth has sparked some new interest in the Millennium. Many people find it hard to understand how such a seemingly perfect beginning could deteriorate into a massive rebellion at the end. The simple answer is “natural man” but let’s take a more comprehensive look.

The Ashes Of A Red Heifer

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron: “This is a requirement of the law that the Lord has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer without defect or blemish and that has never been under a yoke. Give it to Eleazar the priest; it is to be taken outside the camp and slaughtered in his presence. Then Eleazar the priest is to take some of its blood on his finger and sprinkle it seven times toward the front of the tent of meeting. While he watches, the heifer is to be burned—its hide, flesh, blood and intestines. The priest is to take some cedar wood, hyssop and scarlet wool and throw them onto the burning heifer” (Numbers 19:1-6).

Savage Wolves

Commentary by Jack Kelley

I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them” (Acts 20:29-30).

It didn’t take long for Paul’s warning to the elders of the Church in Ephesus to come true. Within the lifetimes of the original apostles false teachers had invaded the Church and were spewing their doctrines around wherever they went.

No One Knows The Day Or The Hour

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Those who ignore the study of end times prophecy are fond of quoting this famous line which appears in various forms in Matt. 24:36, Matt. 24:42,44, Matt. 24:50 and Matt 25:13 as their justification.  But earlier in the same passage, the Lord had admonished all who would read His words of prophecy to understand them (Matt 24:15) and elsewhere the Apostle Paul wrote that the events leading up to the end of the age should not take believers by surprise (1 Thes 5:4) implying that we should have done enough homework to see them coming.

Between First Fruits and Pentecost

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

For some time now, I’ve been puzzled about the time between the resurrection and the ascension, wondering why the Lord lingered during those 40 days.  It certainly wasn’t to complete His mission.  By all accounts He had already accomplished everything He came to do. It seems like He would have been more anxious to return to His heavenly home.

Jude, Gateway To Revelation … Conclusion

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Intending to write a letter to the Church on the subject of salvation, Jude was prompted instead to write about the false teachers who were already infecting the Church with their lies. He was just getting nicely wound up as we finished our first installment. Let’s rejoin him now as he releases the full force of his torrent against them. And as we saw last time, he wasn’t just writing about his times, he was also writing about ours.

Jude, Gateway To Revelation … Part 1

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The Book of Acts is sometimes called the Acts of the Apostles because it’s a record of their experiences in building the early Church. That being the case, the Book of Jude could be called Acts of the Apostates because it’s devoted to warning the Church of the false teachers who were coming to tear it apart.

What Did God Do On The Eighth Day?

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. (Genesis 2:2-3)

Was I Technically Not Baptized?

Q.  I was recently baptized along with my wife and we had the event videoed. I’m a quadriplegic and only have use of my shoulders and biceps, so we had 3 people carry me into the pool. Once I was in, my pastor had me under my armpits, but when he went to submerge me, the top of my head didn’t go all the way under the water. I’m sure he was a bit nervous and didn’t want me to accidentally choke, but shouldn’t I have been fully submerged? I know I’m saved, but was I technically not baptized?

What About Post Church Believers?

Q.  Jesus was the first of many brethren, and the brethren are we who will be raptured, from what I understand.  We are/will be members of the royal family and will be kings and priests.  But what about those who believe after we are raptured?  If I understand it correctly, they will not be kings (although they might be like governors) and they will serve in God’s temple.  Are they also the brothers and sisters of King Jesus, even though they are not royalty?

Satan In The Wilderness

Q. Can you tell me why Satan was not fearful to approach Jesus so boldly and tempt Him in the wilderness? Does Satan still have access to God?

Finding God Again

Q. I totally agree with you that salvation is a gift and there is nothing anyone can do to earn it. Is it possible for someone to accept the gift and years later change their mind and say they do not want it? I accepted Christ in my early 20′s. (I’m now in my early 60′s.) The only reason I can remember for doing so was because I was afraid of going to hell. There are so many things I do in accordance with God’s teaching that are either out of habit or because I feel I should.  At times I believe the best I can hope for is a lesser degree of hell.

Questions About The Temple

Q. I have two questions pertaining to the Temple in Revelation 11:1&2:  In verse one, who are the worshipers in the Temple of God? Could they be Jews who have come to faith in Yeshua and are worshiping Him in spirit and truth or are they Jews who still deny His deity and work of Salvation?  Also, if the temple in Revelation 11:2 is located in Shiloh, why does the “court which is without the temple” have to be given to the Gentiles? The second part of the verse still seems to infer that the very same court is inside the “holy city” which is given to the Gentiles which “they tread under foot forty and two months”.
Thank you for any insights on these questions.

Obadiah And Gaza

Supporting The Jewish People

Q.  How can a Christian support the Jewish people as the Bible says; Genesis 12:3 , Romans 15:27 as well as other Bible references. I have had conversations with other Christians and there is many varying answers and opinions that are not clarifying the question. I know what Gods word says but I really don’t know how to apply my actions to His Word.

Prophets Outside The Bible

Q. I have a question about sources of prophecy other than the bible.  Do you really believe nothing but the Bible is able to prophesy future events?  I have some personal experiences that beg to differ and many other people have been introduced to prophecy from sources other than the bible.  Something out there is dropping hints about various things and occurrences to many people.  I wonder what exactly it is?
