Q. My question has to do with those martyred during the Tribulation. If I understand your teaching correctly, these are not part of the church/bride who will reign with Christ and are called priests and Kings. Revelation 20:4 says some of these martyrs came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” What does it mean “and reigned with Christ for a thousand years? What is their destiny in the millennium?
Q. I believe you just recently said that there will be three different groups of saints. the old testament saints, the church age saints, and the tribulation saints. You also said the church age saints will live in the New Jerusalem and that the other two groups won’t get to live there. I know God has a perfect plan but in my human mind, I’m not sure that sounds fair. Don’t Moses or Abraham or Noah get to live in the New Jerusalem with the rest of us?
Q. We know that God has not already raptured the Church because of His long suffering, giving every human a chance to trust His plan of salvation. Do you think He will come back at a time when every person that will make a decision for Him will have done so, or will there be those who might have trusted Him at a later date, but be lost because He came back? Or do you think it is simply a number thing, when the full number of Gentiles has come in?
Q. Will babies who have been aborted go directly to the Lord as members of the Church or will they be part of another population? I imagine they would be the Church, but I’d appreciate your clarification.
Q. Re: the different races. I have argued that races were man made not from God. I use Act 17:26 to defend this. “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.” What do you think?
Q. In Biblical times, both in the OT and NT, there have always been prophets inspired by the Word of God, and in the NT, Apostles of Christ’s teachings during His time on Earth. Since Paul wasn’t a direct follower of Jesus chosen before the resurrection, why do you think we haven’t been given any Apostles since Paul, if Apostleship is something that was/can be given by God after the Cross? Further, why are there no further recognized prophets since John the baptist?
Q. Why is the Church special? We are the only group that is securely saved. The old testament believers, tribulation believers, and millennial believers will all have to provide evidence of their faith to remain saved. Why are only we so blessed?
Q. How do you answer someone who believes Israel has been replaced by the Church and uses 1 Pet. 2:9 to support his position?
Q. I have a question about church attendance and being saved. I know that we are only saved by what we believe, but what about someone who does not enjoy going to church? I love Jesus and I love being around other Christians but honestly I find church sort of a drag. It is so ritualistic and I find some of the people there think the building is more important than the relationship. How should I deal with this?
Q. I have a friend who has not gone to church for years and has never taken her children either. She says she is a Christian and does not believe you have to go to church to be one. I think if you really are a Christian you will thirst for God’s word and want to go. What do you think?
